There is good information in this book concerning the basics.

As someone with no experience in vermiculture but interested in the subject, I found this book easy to read and inspiring.

As someone with no experience in vermiculture but interested in the subject, I found this book easy to read and inspiring. With lots of pictures and a nice resource listing for further information, it is easy to picture yourself actually raising worms as a business. It's a good read at the right price, and a must for the personal library shelf if you are seriously into worm growing.

I first checked this book out at the library, and after reading it over and over I had to get it. It is the best book on worm raising that I have found yet. Extremely informative and indispensible if you are going to go into the worm raising business. It is easy to follow and gives wonderful ideas of different ways you can set up your farm, with pictures and illustrations. I loved it best because it didn't sound like it was written from an encyclopedia with a lot of useless information. HIGHLY recommended!!!

This book was purchased along with several others on the topic, and after reading them all, I would say this one is the most useful and complete for any person desiring to raise some worms, whether commercially or for home use for composting, fishing bait or a poultry feed supplement.

Instructions are given for setting up various sizes of worm bins and pits, indoors and outdoors. Various methods of worm feeding are mentioned. There are profiles of a number of worm farms, and advice on marketing. The illustrations are very helpful.

This is an older book--- the original edition was written in 1959--- but it was updated in 1994. While there is nothing on the internet marketing of worms--- I anticipate eBay would be a popular marketing tool for the novice worm farmer--- I believe the general marketing advice given is pretty sound.

The instructions given pertain mainly to the common red worm, but there is also a section on the African nightcrawler. It is advised to start off with the red worm, which is easier to raise, and later, if desired, add the nightcrawler to one's business.

There is good information in this book concerning the basics. However, when the topic came to advertising, much of the info is dated. I'm sure all the info was pertinent in the 1960s and 1970s. I am still gad I purchased the book.

While written some years ago the basic premise of this small handbook remains relevant today. I found the information both informative and inspiring. I would recommend the publisher update the book with modern information regarding suppliers and include web sites and e-mail addresses which did not exist when this book was first written. Some of the photos are a bit hard to make out, otherwise I would give this book 5 stars. Overall, worth every penny and I recommend it to those who may be interested in raising worms.

Cool book that's easy reading and not as long as other worm raising books. Also, many more photos than other books that I have seen, even if they are black and white photos.

Helpful book but outdated. Published in the 1960s but many principles still valid. Book was inexpensive and I don't regret buying it. Looks like it was published on a do-it-yourself site with typing style font.
