I wanted a book that would explain the basics of biodynamic gardening in a compact and easy format, which was also well illustrated and this book wins 10 stars! By simply browsing through it I have learned quite alot. The illustrations are clear and plentiful, the information is easy to come by, down to what you need to know to get started right away. For understanding the workings behind it, for the intuitive reader it will be quite simple and enjoyable, none of the boring stuff. I'm very happy with this book!
