 This is my latest book, co-authored with Meleah Maynard, this book takes a look at common gardening advice and whether it's good, bad, or ridiculous. Because of Meleah, this book is more accessible to the beginning gardener than most of my other books.

I wrote this book with my old friend Eric Heberlig, a Political Science Professor at UNC Charlotte.  This book takes a non-partisan look at environmental policy.  Many different topics are covered, from global warming and genetic engineering to plant patents.

This book, published by Westholme Publishing in Yardley, PA, is quite a bit different from my first two books.  In How Trees Die, I explain how humans care for trees (or don't care for trees) and how this ultimately leads to their demise.  For example, I follow a tree in an undisturbed forest, in a managed forest, in an apple orchard, and in a backyard.

 This is my first book which was published in 2006.  I'm proud to say that it was picked up by Timber Press.  I wrote it because I got fed up with the BS that garden marketers and so-called "gurus" were trying to feed to the public.  In this book I provide information about how well the homemade garden cures that you'll see in popular garden books are likely to work.  This is not your typical "blend a beer with two eggs and spray it in on your roses" book because I spend as much time talking about what doesn't work as what does.  I try to always make sure the reader knows the why behind the remedies.

 This is my second book, published in 2008. It focuses on the good and bad aspects of organic gardening.  There seem to be a lot of people out there who think that I don't believe in organic gardening, but that's the furthest thing from the truth.  I believe strongly in organic gardening, but I think that, over the years, the meaning of the word organic has been used for some pretty marginal products and practices.  This book breaks down the practices used in the organic garden and explains why they're great -- or not.
