About
The Book
In this book, with its title harking back to the origin of the word 'economics' - from oikonomikos, or household management - Berry explores and discusses what it means to make oneself “responsibly at home, and in his native and chosen place. He uses this as a theme to explore a variety of topics including the nuclear arms race, the rise in industrial agriculture, preserving wilderness, the meaning of higher education etc.

I’ve learned more from Berry than anyone else about how best to engage with nature, and how to write a sturdy and pleasing english sentence.

What David Kelley says

‘An Incomplete Education’ is probably my favourite book. It talks a little bit about everything from British history to the theory of relativity. I want to synthesize ideas. If I spend too much time in one area, I get uncomfortable.
