David's enthusiasm and passion for gardening jumps off the pages. And that's what makes it so enjoyable. He clearly passionately loves what he does, and that makes it a fun read.
However, David the Good has written what may well be the Necronomicon of composting (and thus, gardening). Now I feel like I can summon the Elder Gods and Old Ones to improve the quality of the vegetables and flowers I grow (when I'm not busy writing or being lazy.) It really is simple: just throw it on the ground. It doesn't matter. I was especially fascinated by the effectiveness of "verboten" compostables like meat, roadkill, bodies, human waste...
So if you're into gardening, agriculture, or just want to learn something that is freaking interesting in an incredibly amusing format, then buy this book. I'll be referencing it for years to come, and will definitely acquire a dead tree version should one become available.
Now granted, I'm still not going to go and make humanure. But I've been letting cardboard/paper slip through my fingers, and given where I live, the notes about using logs to maintain soil moisture will be very useful. I've never used outside sources of animal manure, but the chapter was interesting and informative nonetheless about the dangers modern agricultural practices pose to the would-be composter.
Humorous, informative, easy to read. All you need in a how-to.
