Trained as a scientist, Fukuoka rejected both modern agribusiness and centuries of agricultural practice, deciding instead that the best forms of cultivation mirror nature's own laws. Over the next three decades, he perfected his so-called "do-nothing" technique: commonsense, sustainable practices that all but eliminate the use of pesticides, fertilizer, tillage, and, perhaps, most significantly, wasteful effort.
Whether you're a guerrilla gardener or a kitchen gardener, dedicated to slow food or simply looking to live a healthier life, you will find something here - you may even be moved to start a revolution of your own.

Life saving wisdom.
Everyone should listen to and or read this book.
Even if one disagrees with some of the basic premises (I do not) many of Sensei Fukuoka San's teachings will still be beneficial to most thoughtful listeners and readers...

Fukuoka Hits a Home-Run.
The third book that Masanobu Fukuoka has written is a landmark book and explains the natural way of Farming in detail. Back in 1984 I read his first book, then the second book called “The Natural Way Of Farming”, in 1989. Then “The One-Straw Revolution” in 2018, which is one of the “do-nothing” way of Farming books. It is a simply excellent book and is a distillation of his over 50 years of experience upon trial and error methods, which shows how to grow a multitude of edible plants in season and with Nature, not against it. He has transformed clay soil into rich soil, which gets better each year using a no-till method. The way to do it is in tune with Nature and is very simple to do. A 5-star Landmark book You are compelled to listen to it many times. Simply Outstanding.
