Mark did a great job of updating this book! It is packed with a whole lot more info (not that the 1st edition wasn't packed as well) and is layed out beautifully. All I said in my review of the 1st edition still goes, but I now kinda enjoy the puns and the additional info makes this book even more indispensable. This is the BEST BOOK ON SPROUTING that currently exists! When all is said and done this is what remains: We (The Sproutpeople) have grown over 180 tons of sprouts (by hand) - from over 70 types of seed - since 1993, and when we have a question that we don't know the answer to, we pick up THIS BOOK!

As a professional sprouter I have plenty of experience - and - have read every book under the sun on sprouts. Mark's book is full of terrible puns but when it comes to information on a wide variety of seeds is better than any other I have seen. It still suffers from the same problem as all the others - it states THE WAY to sprout. I have found that there are many ways to sprout and very few hard and fast rules. The result is that newbies follow the written advice and refrain from experimenting - thus limiting their sprouting experience and, I fear - the joy of that experience. It seems to me that everyone who writes books on sprouting must have read a book before they ever sprouted and that they eventually pass on the same misinformation they originally took as fact. I on the other hand didn't read a book until I'd sprouted for a year or more, and when I did I read that things that worked well for me couldn't possibly work at all. So, take what you read with a grain of salt and know this: seeds want to germinate (sprout). If you expose them to moisture they will do it, so sprouting is nothing more than making the the conditions good. Experiment freely. Happy Sprouting :-)

I have read several sections of books on sprouting, and have sprouted off and on, for 20+ years, but this is the best, most detailed, and therefore most helpful of everything I've found. I think teaching someone to sprout from a book is a little like learning to tie your shoes by book: it is easy once you've done it a while, but very difficult if you are a rank beginner. This book is written completely enough for the true beginner, but with LOTS of information for those wanting to "take their sprouting to the next level" by trying scores of different seeds. I finally learned WHY I didn't have success with some types of seeds, and WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT! The only disappointment is that the nutritional information seems mere assertions, with no charts of which sprouts yield what amounts of which nutrients; still, the book is very worth owning. And, by the way, sunflower sprouts are divine on a salad!

Long ago in the 60's I grew sprouts. Then all the info on people getting sick from alfalfa sprouts came out and I shied away from sprouting.
Lately I have realized that veggis from the supermarket are often if not unsafe, are nutritionally challenged. I have turned back to sprouts. This book has been so helpful in figuring out how to safely produce so many nice additions to salads and soups. I love the new Easy Sprout and help from The Sprout People from the internet. So, with all this information I feel that I can safely add to my garden produce.

This book is very helpful in telling you how to sprout seeds. Guiding you with the different products you can use to the finished sprouts themselves. Also, like the fact that you can look at the book before you buy it; it helped me decide if I wanted it or not.

This book does have the information I was looking for to begin sprouting at home, but digging through the writing style of this author is far too tedious for me to offer more than three stars. I'm pretty patient, but this was over-the-top cumbersome.
The scope off the content is complete to my inexperienced eye if you can plow through the acres of unnecessary prose. This book could have been at least 60% shorter/thinner without losing people who may not as patient as I've been.

I would hesitate to recommend this book to a friend. That said, I haven't thrown it away or donated. I guess I'm too frugal for that.
