I will be the first to admit that I am a traditional gardener ... soil, raised beds etc. ... but now after reading Straw Bale gardens, I am excited to give this technique a try.
The book is educational from the intro where he gives a brief history of who he is and who inspired him, through the end. Not only will you learn the straw bale gardening method, but also a few other things along the way.
If you were considering jumping into straw bale gardening, then you NEED this book!
You can get the book from Amazon.
