I just finished this amazing book!! 18 octobre 2011
Par S. C. Johnson - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I just finished this amazing book. I already knew a good deal about aquaponics - at least I thought I did - when I decided I had to read this book to see what the buzz was all about. What a great decision and what a great read. Here's why.

My first impression when I opened up the box I received from Amazon was this is a beautiful cover. I also noticed from the logo on the cover, that the book is a Mother Earth News book selection. Then I flipped it over and immediately spotted that two experts with whom I am personally aware, loved and endorsed the book. This caused me to immediately flip to the Table of Contents.

I found that the list of topics with lots of promised detail was all that I was hoping for. Because the Table of Contents is not visible from within Amazon (publisher and author, I suggest you fix this), I provide some detail here. The book is organized into five main Sections each with two or more chapters (there are 15 chapters in all) plus seven appendices intended as reference resources and a full index.

Section One introduces Aquaponics and puts it into perspective not only relative to other growing methods, but also with regard to the ever increasing issues and challenges that our global population is encountering with food supplies, food safety, food cost, and the impact of agriculture on the planet. This section closes with several pages on the idea of producing food right at your home. Some may think they want to skip the introduction. I think doing so would be a lost opportunity to see just how important aquaponics may prove to be to all of us in the years to come.

Section Two is called The Plan. Ultimately, this book is about how you can become an aquaponics gardener at home. This section paints the broad picture you will need to get your own aquaponics garden right on the first try. It engagingly lays out the main elements of an aquaponics system, describes the factors that should drive your design and tells you what your options are.

Sections Three and Four are cleverly called the Hardware and the Software. The hardware is about the components you will you use to construct your system. It tells you what you will need and also gives you the detail you will want to go ahead and design and build your own system (or to know what to look for if you want to buy one from someone else).

The software is about the four kinds of creatures that will inhabit your system, namely the fish, the plants, the bacteria, and likely the composting worms (optional, but highly recommended). Just as with the hardware, this section paints a broad picture but also gives you lots of detail so you will know what you need to know. As I said above, I already knew lots about aquaponics but I found these two sections to be completely comprehensive with several nuggets that I had not known before I started reading.

Section Five resets your thinking away from all the bits and pieces to the integrated system that aquaponics truly is. It explains how to get your system up and running, and how to keep it up and running through the next days, weeks, months, and hopefully years of productive use.

The Appendices cover troubleshooting, a priceless compendium of Rules of Thumb, a list of (very funny) dumb things the author has done in her journey with aquaponics, some thoughts on starting a commercial aquaponics operation, some useful checklists for running a system, and a list of recommended references.

Wow, what a great book! It was a great read and now it is a great reference for me. I have already found myself wanting to double check something and using the index to find what I wanted. The last part of this book is the only one I have not yet explored. The author sites three plus pages of references she used when writing the book. I think I will check out at least a few of these.

If you could buy only one Aquaponics book 5 octobre 2011
Par Bob Jordan - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I've built and operated two large hobby system this last year and this is THE book I was looking for when I started.

Everyone seems to make Aquaponics (AP) a DIY project. Although its not hard to build, operate and grow your own produce, there are a lot of places where you can make it challenging if you don't have access to good info. Learning AP from the Internet is a mixed blessing. Too much conflicting and misleading and even mis-applied info for a beginner.

Sylvia's book takes the guess work out of building your first or 50th system and rapidly makes it a success. It will be an invaluable resource for you, whether you are the novice, the follow-the-instruction type, the impatient ADHD prone, or the Do It Yourselfer.

All the info is in the book, well categorized, and easy to understand so you can be eating back yard grown, natural, organic, and delicious produce ASAP!

This book will help you create your own customized AP system, that will work and work well.

What a waste... of time and money 10 novembre 2012
Par soil sommelier - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
There is nothing here that an hour with Google can't replace. Her "science" is lacking at best, and completely false everywhere else. Core issues of the process are given a very biased and cursory treatment. There is however a good bit of time spent trying to lay not so subtle support for her $1,300 packaged "system" (two tubs and a pump on a T.V. stand).

"The covers of this book are too far apart."
- Ambrose Bierce (1842-1914)

A quick example of the author's depth of wisdom:
Her comparisons of artificial lighting choices refer to lumens, which are a unit of measure that is relative to what the human eye can register. Were aquaponics a system for growing or impairing human eyes I suppose this might be useful. Plants "see" light differently. They use different parts of the spectrum for different things, and this is pretty much completely ignored.
She continually refers to the process of water draining and being replaced by new solution provided by a pump, as a process that sucks oxygen into the media. Physics and fluid dynamics be damned.
Her contention that magnetic drive pond-type pumps are the obviously superior choice just adds to her credentials as a bloviator of the first order. The multitude of reliable circulating pumps available that are more efficient, longer lasting, more reliable, etc. is but one more example of just how limited her knowledge and/or research on the subject is.
On one hand she champions "earth friendly" practices, while forgiving her own system's and suggested practices that don't even begin to fill the bill. Me thinks her an opportunistic fraud.
Her suggestion that her methods will result in a system that never needs cleaning is complete idiocy. The very process that she is supposedly such an authority on, is the very essence of soil creation. As this process occurs, there will be a build up of solids and... oh what's the use. She doesn't have even a basic understanding of 8th grade science, marketing and sales... yes, but science... nope.
The differences between chlorine and chloramine are Aquariast 101. This is news to the author. One can be agitated or evaporated off, and the other not.

Not much original thought here, much about what others have done or are doing. Were quotes, reprints, and cut and paste commentary from her own Googling endeavors edited out, I've no doubt the book would be reduced to a pamphlet. It literally takes her 70 pages to get to the first real potentially useful bit of information about aquaponics (once past her mindless world view politics and pseudo-science), but unfortunately, even this is nothing original. Save your dough and spend 20 minutes watching You Tube videos.
She actually suggested using Twatter as a source for product recommendations... gimme a break!

There are lots of people that manage to keep fish alive while growing plants, and also in intensive aquaculture, in spite of their best attempts at killing everything. Where fish in a closed system are concerned, there is no such thing as too clean. Most of the variables that are left dangling in the author's process can and will create stresses for the fish, but using the idiot tolerant tilapia, they have a decent shot at surviving anyway. Do yourselves and your fish a favor and learn how to care for the animals in particular, properly, before you attempt anything more complex

Just about anyone can kill enough fish and plants to eventually work this all out, but thinking that this "author's" extemporaneous ramblings are going to provide a solid basis for avoiding those pitfalls would be a false hope. Take some time to learn about raising and caring for fish, and some plants, individually first. There's plenty of great information on fish keeping and gardening sites to help you accomplish this. You'll doubtless be provided with a broader knowledge base than the person selling this book.

I suggest questioning the testimonials and interlocking support offered by others in the so-called aquaponics community. Understand that this is her and another seller of junk cross branding and vouching for one another. Trust your own instincts and intellect. You must be smarter than the average bear to be interested in the subject in the first place, so don't waste your time and money on these wannabe's and sales people trying to separate you from your hard earned dough.

Be careful before you buy the kindle version. 28 janvier 2012
Par Andrew - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Now, before I say -anything- I would like to thank the author for presenting aquaponics in such a concise, clear, and informative fashion. I've been searching the net for months on end gathering information about systems and deciding how and where to build them. This book provided all that and more and I highly recommend it to anyone that is interested in the subject. All those five star ratings are for a good reason.

That said, I don't know what happened to the kindle version. I'm working at saving money right now and reducing how much space I take up by selling books and trying to replace them with the kindle books. I've been acquiring a lot of data, and occasionally finding new and interesting things to read in the kindle store.

I say all of this to give a little background on why I'd give such a great book a low rating. On Amazon there are some kindle books that are free, and some kindle books that you pay money for. Generally when you get one for free it's expected to not have the finest formatting available nor is it usually going to have a table of contents. Paragraphs and chapter headings may not be clear. These are all things that I expect from a free or under five dollar kindle title.

I believe I payed around ten dollars for the kindle edition of step by step aquaponics and immediately noticed that there was no table of contents. This is a bit bothersome considering that there are some "rules of thumb" thoughtfully provided by the author in an appendix that I'm going to have to slog through the entire book just to get to and look at.

Sometimes there are quotes by online users or anecdotes from owner-builders in the text, but due to the lack of quotation marks in many of them I can't tell if it's the author or someone else until I read a page and a half more. It can be genuinely confusing.

Also chapter subheadings often have no space between them and the paragraphs they head, or no indication that they are headings at all just strange general assemblages of words with no punctuation that I have come to assume are headings. I had on instance where I was reading a paragraph and realized a sentence began over again in the middle...

So, once again. I am grateful that this book exists and I have no complaints about the quality of the information presented. But the formatting makes me regret spending the money for the kindle edition.

Over rated 12 septembre 2012
Par Stephen Arnold - Publié sur
Format: Broché
After much research on what resources are available I purchased Sylvia's book on Aquaponics based on the many high reviews it has received on Amazon. It seemed like a good resource to add to the information I've been compiling regarding aquaponics. I was immediately dissapointed in that the first third of the book is spent telling the reader how the world is falling apart and that food production in America is dangerous and driven by greed. Since I purchased a book about Aquaponic Gardening and not the state of food production in America I quickly grew tired of reading about her opinion on the state of food production. Is the subject relevant in a book about Aquaponics, sure, but not near to the extent Sylvia chose to spend. Those who are studying and developing aquaponics are already well aware that things need to change when it comes to feeding ourselves and others.

What was also disappointing is that when she got around to explaining aquaponics her approach was narrow and misleading. In her book she teaches her opinion on what works in aquaponic development and not what is being practiced and producing all over the world. She completely ignores certain aspects of design and function while confidently stating that her way is the only way. I may it three fourths of the way thru the book and simply couldn't take it anymore. She either is purposefully leaving out a great deal of information or simply doesn't understand aquaponics enough to be writing an authoritative book on the subject.
