This book offers lively review of one of the most overlooked and yet critical factors in farm management. Farming, probably more than any other industry, has chronically suffered from poor or indifferent management. This is an account of how business-like, management-oriented farmers have succeeded through the erratic economic cycles and may provide insight into the future of American agriculture.
