I'm glad I purchased this,
This review is from: Compost Tea Making: For Organic Healthier Vegetables, Flowers, Orchards, Vineyards, Lawns (Paperback)
I almost didn't buy this book because of the two poor reviews. Then I thought perhaps the reviewers could simply be the typical curmudgeons who are rarely pleased with anything. I found this book to be an enjoyable read, with practical, useful ideas. I do agree with the one curmudgeon, that Teeming With Microbes is an excellent book, but more general. Compost Tea Making focuses on simply that, going into further detail. The worm growing chapter is quite good. The chapter on EM (effective microorganisms) is short, and could be in more detail.
The ideas are presented in a style that encourages readers to experiment or modify recipes or techniques to suit their own needs. For those that somehow need definitive answers this book may not be for you. I am not one of those. The author illustrates how complex, and only partially understood microbiology is. The bottom line is--I am convinced. Compost tea and EM products are the wave of the future for horticulture. Without going into detail--my plants have benefited from just a few compost tea applications.
