I just ordered my copy and I so far rate it "very good" because it is already an inspiration to so many people that need a garden but do not know yet how much they really do! I was born and raised on a small family farm and we grew and harvested our own food for a family of 8. We provided the extra harvest to familys who did not garden and this was a simple and natural occurence that took no additional effort to produce. No matter what your politics are, surely you can allow your mind to imagine how a basic gardening incouragement can begin a food revolution that this country has to embrace! Thank you First Lady Michelle Obama for your insight and leadership. For the negative comments written here that have nothing to do with the book or it's intent, please remember that hate will inspire hate.

    If you want a very good or exceptional gardening book, go with one of the books themed toward square foot gardening, this one is good (three stars) at very best. If there was the option, it would have 2.5.
