Like most comprehensive books we'll start with the basics and go from there. I've tried to make this information make sense even if you've no previous science or agricultural knowledge. Even if you've never so much as had a goldfish you can still master aquaponics.

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this book, especially because I’m new to aquaponics. But it gave me tank to fish ratios, chemical formulas, and grow bed outlays. I don’t know what will stick once I get more experience, but this is great info for beginners at least! I’m eager to try this stuff out!

Helping us kindle an ever-growing passion for God's glory, this book by popular author Paul David Tripp reminds us of the importance of awe for shaping everything we choose, decide, think, desire, say, and do. Reflecting on how awe for God impacts our approach to spiritual warfare, ministry, material things, and more, Tripp will energize your love for God by opening your eyes afresh to the glory of his love, grace, and power.

Foundational to understanding your christian walk. Awe is essential to walking right and putting God first!
The problem I had with this book is that I already know I have an awe problem, I already know too many things take my attention away from God. I bought this book hoping it would help me put God first even more and sadly found it lacking.
Maybe it’s just as simple as recognizing, praying for a renewal of your mind, and time. But I was hoping for more solutions.

Christians often focus so much on being loving and giving that they forget their own limits and limitations. Have you ever found yourself wondering: Can I set limits and still be a loving person? How do I answer someone who wants my time, love, energy, or money? Why do I feel guilty when I consider setting boundaries?

Why do only a few people get to say "I love my job?" It seems unfair that finding fulfillment at work is like winning a lottery; that only a few lucky ones get to feel valued by their organizations, to feel like they belong. Imagine a world where almost everyone wakes up inspired to go to work, feels trusted and valued during the day, then returns home feeling fulfilled. This is not a crazy, idealized notion. Today, in many successful organizations, great leaders are creating environments in which people naturally work together to do remarkable things.

Humans live in landscapes of make-believe. We spin fantasies. We devour novels, films, and plays. Even sporting events and criminal trials unfold as narratives. Yet the world of story has long remained an undiscovered and unmapped country. It's easy to say that humans are "wired" for story, but why? In this delightful and original book, Jonathan Gottschall offers the first unified theory of storytelling. He argues that stories help us navigate life's complex social problems.

I thought I was getting a book on storytelling techniques. What I got was how stories were important to us in the past. Which wouldn't be too bad if it didn't lean so much on evolution. It was annoying all the way to the end.

Science has figured out a lot of interesting aspects of self-discipline and willpower, but most of this knowledge is buried deep inside long, boring scientific papers. If you'd like to benefit from these studies without actually reading them, this audiobook is for you. I've done the job for you and researched the most useful and viable scientific findings that will help you improve your self-discipline.

Each day we face a barrage of images and messages from society and the media telling us who, what, and how we should be. We are led to believe that if we could only look perfect and lead perfect lives, we'd no longer feel inadequate. So most of us perform, please, and perfect, all the while thinking, What if I can't keep all of these balls in the air? Why isn't everyone else working harder and living up to my expectations? What will people think if I fail or give up? When can I stop proving myself?

With scarcely enough food or money for his own family, George Müller (1805-1898) opened his heart and home. Sustained by God's provision, the Müller house "Breakfast Club" of thirty orphans grew to five large houses that ultimately over ten thousand children would call home. George Müller trusted God with a depth rarely seen. His faith and generosity set a standard for Christians of all generations.

It's a argument I often have with family.
Doesn't the Bible say to take care of the poor and not to worry for he will take care of everything? It's awesome to see that there are examples of this kind of faith out there!

I've always liked a good question and now I know why. The first part of the book talks about questions for personal growth. The second and why I bought it was questions for others growth. The third part questions that anyone can grow from. Enjoyed this book very much!
