I am new to composting and therefore pretty sure it would not have taken a lot of content to impress me but this book sadly manages to disappoint anyway.
The book is rich in photographs, but unfortunately an overwhelming number of these photographs are actually pixelated and blurry. As someone who enjoys visuals as much as good writing, this is disappointing. Again, I'm not sure how that got past the publishers.
The other thing I find odd about this book is the lack of the word organic in the actual text. Because it shows up in the title of the book, I assumed that organic composting is different from regular composting. Nowhere in the first four chapters does the author attempt to discuss why her book focuses on organic composting and what the differences are.
The author obviously understands the composting process, but her knowledge is almost lost in rambling chapters rampant with typos. This book could be so much better with a good round of editing and updated pictures. Ultimately, I returned my copy.
