あらすじ・解説

When we use chemical fertilizers, we injure the microbial life that sustains plants and then become increasingly dependent on an arsenal of toxic substances. Teaming with Microbes offers an alternative to this vicious circle and details how to garden in a way that strengthens, rather than destroys, the soil food web. You’ll discover that healthy soil is teeming with life - not just earthworms and insects, but a staggering multitude of bacteria, fungi, and other microorganisms. 

This must-have guide is for everyone, from those devoted to organic gardening techniques to weekend gardeners who simply want to grow healthy plants without resorting to chemicals.

Poor delivery

Narration is poor; there doesn’t seem to have been any quality control at all.

First off, the narrator has a pleasing voice but his constant mispronunciation of words drove me crazy. He sometimes even changes pronunciation halfway through a sentence (pronouncing “aeration” as both “air-ee-ay-shun” then “air-ay-shun”). More maddening are (1) there’s a line missing from Chapter 3 (if I remember correctly) of the audiobook so there are two sentences you won’t be able to make sense of, and (2) the narrator doesn’t know (and didn’t bother finding out) that “spp.” is an abbreviation for “species” so he treats it like an acronym and says “S. P. P.” each of the dozens of times it comes up.

The content is important and the book itself is pretty good although grammar sometimes makes ideas unclear, sometimes incorrect words are used (“soil texture” when they meant “soil structure”), and the authors’ high-labor approach (multiple applications every year infinitely into the future) is opposed to their mentor - Dr. Elaine Ingham’s - approach. Reintroducing the biology and correcting management should resolve things, not create never-ending work.

It also seems unconscionable to try to refocus the conversation on soil biology and not spend a chapter about buying a $100-300 microscope and how to use it to - at least - be able to figure out the balance of fungi and bacteria in your soil / compost.

Great read, even better listen.

I really happy this book made it to audible. I don’t have the time to read as much as I would like so this helps a lot ! Now hurry up and add your other books to Audible so I can absorb all the informational nutrition. Thank you Mr. Lowenfels and everyone involved in creating this audio book. 🙏💚

A worthy read not worth listening to

The book itself is jam packed with information in a somewhat accessible manner. This audio comes across as extremely uninspiring and dry. If I had not already read this, I wouldn't want to after listening. The author has several other titles worth reading as well.
Get the book, skip the audio.
If you are set on listening to the subject manner in this book I highly recommend "The Hidden Half of Nature."

excellent

"What makes this book different from other texts on soil is our strong emphasis on the biology and microbiology of soils—relationships between soil and organisms in the soil and their impact on plants. We are not abandoning soil chemistry, pH, cation exchange, porosity, texture, and other ways to describe soil."...

top notch

excellent presentation of essential information. it's easy to digest the information given in this book. it's all well and good to have the secret of of life, but if you can't communicate it, it's still only potential, and yet to be revealed, ie. worthless to do anyone any good. if you want to do well by the earth in any way, this book is a good starting place.

comprehensive and insightful

I am very gratified that Jeff's books are now becoming available on Audible especially this one
His background d and experience as well as insights and examples are exceptional and informative.
bravo.
i a hoping that his other book entitled."Teaming with Fungi: The Organic Grower's Guide to Mycorrhizae (Science for Gardeners) " will be part of the series eventually....one of his best.

Needs re-recording

The audio on this is terrible, currently on chapter 4 and there's just too much high tone at the end of each word, not sure I can finish as really difficult to listen to, going to buy the book instead. Real shame as the info so far is great.

Brilliant book!

Absolutely brilliant book! A thorough exploration of soil food web theory and PRACTICAL applications. Reader is slightly mechanical but content is gold. Would suit beginner, intermediate and advanced gardeners wanting to use organic principles.

A must read for growers and gardeners

If you're growing using an organic approach, this is a must read. Jeff approaches the topic from a scientific perspective and knows a lot about the soil food web. No BS straight forward read. Will definately read again and will recommend.
