This is a great book for the beginning gardener. Although I don't consider myself a beginning gardener, I'm giving the book 4 stars because, it was fun and easy to read, it mentioned so many of the thought leaders that I readily referance in my daily conversations and Ms. Owens pulled everything together for the novice gardener to fully understand why it's an important act of self-reliance, health, knowledge and spiritual significance for a broad spectrum of Americans to start and maintain a home garden. Michelle expels all the fear and loathing of gardening with entertaining anecdotes involving the authors own life as an amateur gardener (and some of her friends and neighbors) as well as some serious (yet very approachable) facts and figures about the nitty-gritty scientific, health related and socioeconomically truths behind the act of gardening. A few of my favorite quotes: "[when we are gardening] we are not preoccupied with ourselves, we actually have a chance to expand the concept of who we are." "...if we are in the midst of a sustainable revolution then it's time for a new eyeglass prescription when it comes to our squandered yards." "Take up gardening and you, too, may find it impossible to die."
