Fascinating book--you can not argue with success. He wants to teach people how to grow the tallest tomatoes they possibly can with huge yields. One of his record setting tomato plants was 21+ feet. His precise methods would be adaptable to all who have an interest in growing tomatoes with homemade compost.
Others topics stressed are mulching and pipe irrigation.

He also has phenomenal success with container grown tomatoes and includes instructions on growing in 1/2 whiskey barrels.

I have 20 + books on growing tomatoes (I collect them) and this is my favorite. The book does require careful reading to understand all his tomato growing tips but well worth the effort.

I found this book very interesting and helpful. I think every tomato grower should read it. in particular, I adapted his suggestion for making a drip matrix from PVC pipe and it worked great.

All of the advice in this book is for organic growers and is very good. Also, the author is quite a character and has a lot of entertaining stories. In addition, the pictures are great! So why is this review not completely positive? Because the information is not organized very effectively and it takes quite a lot of work to figure out what to do first, second, third, etc. That said, using the "secrets" in this book I was able to grow tomato plants that wowed the neighborhood.
