Badly written, it makes a mockery of biodynamics., 12 May 2013
Having read a fair amount about Steiner and the biodynamic movement I was looking forward to reading this book. Joly's book lacks detail, scientific evidence and direction. It is very dissaponting.
There are many examples in the book. The explanation (lack of) of the cows horn buried in the ground is astonishingly ridiculous. I can understand how decaying dung and nettle can benefit the soil, yet the explanation of why a cows horn and not other animal is absurd and laughable.
The same goes for the rest of the book, it jumps from misconception to misconception. I would recommend Joly to a good read of Darwin or any of his contemporaries on plant history and evolution.
Overall, if you like conspiracy theories with no bearing to reality please read this. If on the contrary you are interested on biodynamics i suggest you purchase a different book.
