Awesome This book was the most inspirational piece of literature I have ever read. It gave me such a wonderful insight on the magical world of soil. I did not realize how many different aspects of soil there were. For example, dirt is what you sweep off the front porch, but soil is the magical glitter that graces this earth. Man, Dr. Pierzynski you ROCK!!!!!!!
