About this book

This is a newly revised and updated edition of Holistic Resource Management, 1988, where a decade of trial-and-error implementation has strengthened and clarified the book's ideas, and has expanded the scope of the process to include all manner of decisions and management situations. This book is an essential handbook for anyone involved with land management and stewardship and a valuable guide for all those seeking to make better decisions within their organizations or in any aspect of their personal lives.


Four key insights - the power lies in the holistic goal; the ecosystem that sustains us all; the tools we use to manage our ecosystem; testing your decisions; completing the feeback loop; some practical guidelines for management; planning procedures unique to holistic management; new perspectives.
