5.0 out of 5 stars I'm finally excited to compost! June 25, 2012
By heppy

This book breaks composting down (See what I did there?) and makes it really easy to understand. I like that the author doesn't try to make it seem more complicated than it is, and by doing so, I'm actually encouraged and excited to start composting rather than discouraged and confused.

There are a couple of features of this book that I really enjoyed. The first is the quick list of things you can compost - separating the list into carbon- and nitrogen-rich materials makes so much more sense now. I also like the troubleshooting tips at the end. He covers basically any situation you can think of and offers rational, understandable advice.

All in all, I'm really glad I found this book! I know I will be using this information for years to come!

5.0 out of 5 stars A real how-to-compost book June 22, 2012
Verified Purchase
Finally, a down-to-earth (or down-to-compost!) book that gives what every beginner to composting needs: the facts, plain and simple. It actually takes more writing skill and knowledge of what you're writing about to convey the facts in a clear and concise manner. This book does that. It explains why you should compost and how you can do this in different ways, some easy, some more difficult and at different costs. The author explains that you can always get more involved in composting and more elaborate but that is your choice. Bravo for an excellent book!

1.0 out of 5 stars Where is the useful information? January 21, 2014
By Kris

A complete waste of 4 bucks...I had already done some research on composting on the internet...I wanted a more in depth view on it. The book took me about 15 minutes to read. Save yourself the money and just use google. You will get the exact same information.

I have been composting with a heap for several years. It is mainly kitchen scraps and shredded paper and leaves. I have wanted to have some good guidelines that were easy to follow and now I have them. Thanks so much.

5.0 out of 5 stars A quick read that answered all of my questions July 24, 2013
By JNA

Big thank you to Lars for making a short, easy to read book that answered all of my questions about how to get started when it comes to composting. Very happy that I spent the money and flipped through this (it only took me about 20 minutes to make it all the way through). I bought my tumbling compost bin off of Craigslist and I am excited to start putting in cardboard (from our recent move) and kitchen scraps so my compost bin can create some perfect soil for me!

Everything you need to know, and, nothing you don't. This booklet is exactly what it says it is: a concise guide to composting. Hundley gives a basic overview of what can be composted, types of compost bins, and how to care for your compost. I liked the area where he discussed the brown to green ratio, and gave a list of browns and greens. Nothing in this book is revolutionary, but it doesn't claim to be. For a free book, it was definitely worth the time to read, and I will be referencing the brown/green portion in the future.
