A Sellout!

Postby ColinJEly » Tue Oct 21, 2008 1:50 pm

A great new book! Contacted my usual bookshop where I got Back from the Brink, reply was 'Sorry we've sold out' Got a copy locally and read it over the weekend. Just a thought for the next book, as a 'city slicker' I wouldn't mind seeing some photos of 'before and after' of some properties, or how about an aerial view of a photo (nice and green ;-) ) surrounded by other 'unenlightened' properties.
Did we all see Four Corners last night about the MDBS? Disgracefull! All these farms with ploughed paddocks and not a blade of green to be seen!

I bought BTB on Saturday, and have read it (quickly) since. I thought that I would post up my first impressions.

BTB is an excellent supplement/expansion of/complement to BFTB. Peter goes into a lot more detail regarding specifics, and the reader can develop an even more authorative understanding of the processes that Peter discusses - how the problems have developed, and the particular solutions that can be implemented.

Peter paints a picture of a complex natural system, with key elements working together in a symbiotic fashion to develop a healthy and sustainable landscape. He discusses in detail the three elements to a healthy landscape - fertility, minerals and moisture - and shows how nature works to deliver these. He then shows how we can follow nature's lead to get these factors working together on our properties.

It is a compelling message. I intend to post more thoughts when I have re-read the book.
