Michael Pollan’s Review of Real Dirt

I had the opportunity to give Michael Pollan a copy of Real Dirt at a conference. Here is the note he sent me after reading it (which he gave me permission to post):


Harry: I read your book on the way home and just wanted to tell you how fine I thought it was. You completely ignore every orthodoxy, which allows you to speak about both with unusual credibility. It’ll piss everybody off, I’m sure, but I found it very persuasive on many points. Also well written and clear and funny. Congratulations– it’s an important contribution to the conversation.

All [the] best,


If you’re in Canada, Real Dirt is available on the book website www.realdirt.ca   Everywhere else in the world, it is available through most major online retailers or can be ordered through your local bookstore.
