Reviews

"How can humanity feed its burgeoning billions when one-third of agricultural soil is degraded? Pondering that question propelled geologist David Montgomery on a three-decade, six-continent survey of farmland. The insights gleaned add nuance to his pointed critiques of agrotechnology and organic farming, but it's the findings on rapid soil restoration that compel." -- Nature
"Brilliant, well researched, eloquent, and deeply hopeful." -- Denis Hayes, founder of Earth Day
"David Montgomery... is one of our most eloquent and precise earth science communicators... [He] has a knack for opening our minds to large, critically important questions." -- New Scientist
"A wise and grounded book - restored soils are the solution." -- Jules N. Pretty, Professor of Environment and Society, University of Essex, UK
"Growing a Revolution presents a clear-eyed examination of a solution to the challenges we face in feeding the world. A joy to read with the bounce and flow of a great biography. I couldn't recommend it more." -- Jerry Harrison, keyboardist and guitarist, Talking Heads
"Montgomery has written another classic. Growing a Revolution is one of the most important books ever written-an engaging and revealing service to human society and our planet." -- Amir Kassam, professor of agriculture, policy and development, University of Reading, UK
"This is a such an important book... thanks to those who told me to read it... Everyone interested in what we should eat and how we should farm should read it." -- James Rebanks
