Weeds & What They Tell Us, 3rd Edition
"Weeds are weeds only from our human egotistical point of view, because they grow where we do not want them. In nature, however, they play an important and interesting role."
Thus begins this classic text written by a pioneer in the field of sustainable agriculture who, through his work with Rudolf Steiner and a lifetime of research, wielded a vast knowledge of plant and animal biology.
This important book was written in the 1950s, yet no other book contains the overview that Dr. Pfeiffer presents here, and the message contained lives on as important now as it was over 40 years ago.
Weeds and What They Tell Us, while somewhat dated and limited, is a classic that belongs on the bookshelf of every student of the soil.

I did not find this useful. It is aimed at someone who uses herbicides and doesn't use their weeds.
I really enjoyed reading this book, it’s an easy read and it has many places to leave off and pick back up. Lots of good information though some is dated but it is mostly timeless
