    1. I feel somewhat unfair giving this book such a bad review, but I can only comment on my experience with it. I found it to be a curious mix of immense condescension, airy-fairy nonsense and unapproachable pseudo-science. I wanted to be absorbed, transformed and finish converted to the Way of Permaculture. Instead I feel even more alienated than I did before picking it up. The cutesy illustrations and the meditations masquerading as "homework" exercises, interspersed between dense blocks of wander [...]

    2. a disturbingly dumbed down version of Bill Mollison's Introduction to Permaculture. If i had read this book first, i would give it another star. It has some good information despite it seemingly written for 10 year olds. Full of unneeded repetitions, especially in the bulleted main points at the beginning of each chapter. They made me cringe. maybe also due to the vagueness of the statements. There are some gems here and there that are not in Bill's book, but those can easily be obtained on the [...]

    3. This is the best introduction to the concepts and practice of permaculture that I've found. The writing is clear and easy to understand, there are lots of pictures and diagrams to illustrate the concepts which are being taught and each chapter ends with exercises you can work through on your own to develop the relevant skills. I read it in a single afternoon, but it's actually designed to be a guide through which you slowly work through as you refine and develop the interactions and design of a [...]

    4. I read this book as part of my permaculture design course. The layout is like a textbook. I didn't mind the tone of the book as much as some other reviewers, but it wasn't as compelling as the books by Bill Mollison, David Holmgren and Toby Hemenway. Overall, the information presented was valid and helpful, so that bolsters my review a bit. I did find this book encouraging, but it's not a book I would have sought out to read on my own.

    5. A bit too much information for the potential permaculturalist with a back yard instead of a back 40, but very thorough and clear in its teachings. The author is Australian, which means that many of the species she uses for examples are not really ones I as an Oregonian would choose, but it's fun to hear her discuss how planting this or that plant will encourage the kangaroos and the wallabies.

    6. Easy to understand, informative and useful.Mine was a second-hand copy picked up in a used book store, so for the price, in comparison to purchasing Bill Mollinson's manual, a reasonable, budget priced introduction.The keyword being introduction. If you are looking for an indepth textbook, this is not the book for you. It is written for the Australian environment, so overseas readers may not understand some of the idiosyncrasies. I enjoyed it.

    7. A really helpful, hands-on book/workbook about the principles of permaculture. The author is Australian, so there is the occasional reference to plants/animals specific to her region that wouldn't be applicable in a North American setting. This only made the book more engaging for me, as the thought of having to plant things that would deter kangaroo damage was unexplainably entertaining to me. Really solid introduction to permaculture principles, with concrete action steps laid out.

    8. This is a fantastic overview of the philosophy of permaculture, not a reference book. Reads like a school text, with lots of ways you can implement the ideas. I was disappointed that it didn't get more specific on how to plant. But if you're new to the idea of permaculture, it's a great starting point.

    9. this book is a great resource for teachers to use for agriculture lessons. It has lots of great information on easy to follow instructions on setting up a permaculture systeme contents page tells me that the book shows how to start a permaculture garden and then tells what the themes are related to permaculture and then how to apply the principles to your everyday gardening experience.

    10. Fantastic! A wonderful introduction to permaculture. Easy to follow ways of looking at your own space with a view to designing a management plan that will bring you closer to living sustainably with nature in your area.

    11. Reading this book for my permaculture course. It's not the one I would have picked myself and after the first chapter I'm already a little hesitant about how it's going to go :-( I hear great things about the class though, so at least on that I'm confident I'll walk away having learned bunches!

    12. A very accessible resource and introduction to Permaculture. I got about half-way through. When I own land again, I'll probably pick it back up and finish it!

    13. Reading this in preparation for permaculture group discussions in my community - the world would be a better place if everyone ate food from their backyard!!

    14. Want to reduce your ecological footprint? Then this is the right book. Full of practical suggestions, easy to understand but with depth.
