It is targeted at a reader who lives in the outskirts of the suburbs or in a rural area with room to spread out. There is a chapter about container gardening, but most of the book is large scale including a section on keeping animals and another on moving to a farm. I will take a few notes about companion plants, but at the end of the day this book doesn't have the specifics I was looking for, nor does it address the scale of gardening I do.
I don't personally agree with part of what it says, like the treatment of weeds (most of the named are edible and highly nutritious). I do agree with others, like the mention of dandelion for salads. Some of the information, like what to plant close to what, is something to ponder.
The last page of the ebook shows a couple of links to other products being sold, hopefully they do contain practical information.
I gave it three stars because the writer did a good job, even when he/she might have never planted anything in his/her life. To the publisher.... they could have given more information. With so little practical info they are surely losing sales of the books promoted.
Grandma's Opinion: This book is mostly a waste of time. If you want great ideas about preserving food or making compost or raising vegetables, buy one of the very well regarded GoTO books specific to those topics. Or see the Internet.
There was some stuff that was interesting and some I agreed with but others not so much. It's a good book that I will use for my children for homeschooling and give further assignments but it was not what I was expecting.
