5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading - for EVERYONE, 31 May 2006
Finding this book was like being young and gay and finding Jeanette Winterson. I no longer feel like a freak. Joanna Blythman is brave and radical and if more people read this book we might have some hope of rebuilding a food culture in Britain. Her chapters on cheap food and class are outstanding. I now have words for what I suspected to be true but never felt brave enough to say. We all deserve good food. Buy this book, read it and lend it to as many people as possible. Please.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastically Low Tech, 29 Dec. 2005
I love this book. Shepherd shares his passion for biodiversity and his experiences of gardening for the night with wonderful intimacy. First we get to eavesdrop on a conversation he has with a woman which meanders from moths to monkeys and back again. Then we get snippets of his 'memory book' diary. We learn about what plants are good for the night time garden, how to build a pond and that Shepherd is an old romantic who likes kissing in hammocks. This book feels great too, it's published by the Centre for Alternative Technology on Cyclus 100% post consumer waste paper which helps give it that feel of reading someone's notebook. Buy this book - it will make you want to be in your garden at night. Magic.
