My compost has definitely benefited!
Gregory P. Myers
Seems to be very informative and is laced with humor which accounts for the fact that I did not want to put the book down until I had read the very last word.
Dale Kirby
Very fun book about everything you ever wanted to know about compost but were afraid to ask.

BUY THIS BOOK. You'll never regret it, and you'll read it to tatters. Turn your household garbage into beautiful rich loam. Mr. McGrath tells you what you need to know, in simple but funny language, about composting. This is an excellent gift book, written by someone who knows how to make plain old information fascinating and funny. Although we've never met, I sense a kindred soul who understands how to save the planet by intelligently recycling garbage to create a home for flowers and vegetables.

Composting is an art. This book will tell you how to learn it.

I purchased two books on composting for our gardeners' library. This was a simple and fun basic composting guide, and with the other book purchased from Amazon: The Complete Compost Gardening Guide, the library now has a great compost resource from basic to expert tips and how-tos.

As a devout listener to Mike McGrath on NPR, I found this book an essential must-have for any home gardening enthusiast. It is an easy read and gets right to the heart of the who, what, when, where, why and how of composting. Mike's light-hearted style makes learning very entertaining, and is technical enough to keep on-hand as a reference book for years to come. My compost has definitely benefited!

Quite a thorough look at creating compost from a man who's done it all over the years.
Written with somewhat silly humor sometimes - but always informative and instructive.
Perhaps the only book you'll need on composting.

This little book is packed full of useful info, everything you need to get started or improve your composting system. Highly recommended. Easy to read (love the author's conversational style), and easy to understand his logic. Great reference!
