Review

"I have had many soil textbooks cross by desk over the years. The Plaster text continues to be my favorite. It is user friendly, marrying theory and practical knowledge into one text. It is one that both students and professionals can turn to again and again as a great soils resource."

"This text discusses basic soil science principles and includes many references to horticulture and landscaping, making it appropriate for students in urban areas where traditional agriculture is not the norm. It is very user-friendly, with an easy to read style and many figures and color pictures illustrating concepts. I have used the book in my soil class at a community college since it was first introduced by the author and have not found anything that comes close to being as useful as this text."

I''m not really the intended audience of this book, being a home gardener rather than a student, but I enjoyed it just the same. The book is much easier to read than I expected, with plenty of white space and pictures to make it easy on the eyes. I was interested to see the inclusion of topics like city gardening, an in-depth look at animal manures, and even a cameo appearance of permaculture in addition to the basics that you''d expect.

But the heart of the book, of course, is a look at what makes soil do its job, and that part of the book really helped fill in a lot of gaps in my education. I''m confident I''ll make better choices in the garden now with this book''s information under my belt. Yes, I would have preferred not to pay $180 for a used copy of a book, but none of the soil books geared to laymen that I''ve read so far have been worth their salt. So I guess a textbook is worth the higher price if it really delivers.
