Its accessibility makes it a quick read but makes it disappointingly thin in other spots. I'm going to have to hit some additional resources to get a more rounded approach to composting that addresses the impacts of composting to reduce household waste, such as paper goods. I'm not convinced that paper towels shouldn't go in the compost pile.
Written with somewhat silly humor sometimes - but always informative and instructive.
Perhaps the only book you'll need on composting.
The price of the book suggested more valued information. The info presented was accurate, but should have been expounded
in certain areas to keep it from being just another basic book.
It basically gives the rationale of compost and how to make it. Definitely a quick easy read and a bit more of a pep talk than a scientific treatise. One advantage is that Mike has been asked the same questions hundreds (thousands?) of times, so he puts those answers into the book... egg shells? coffee grounds? it's in there.
Composting is an art. This book will tell you how to learn it.
