But I felt that the book needs some serious updating and if he has a newer one than this one needs to go the way of the dodo.
Steve does a great job telling you what's what about sprouts including how to grow them, what you need to know about different seeds, why to eat them, what some nutritional values looked like, and he even provided a growth and harvest chart that I found useful. His personal experience with healing is inspiring but you won't read about that in here; this book's purpose is to quickly educate you and get you farming your own sprouts... now.
My wife and kids are traditional eaters, but they sure did enjoy watching me grow the sprouts and then sampling them with me. After reading the book, growing them was easy and it's actually inexpensive. The flavor was wonderful. If you haven't tasted organic sprouts you haven't tasted true flavor.
If you're thinking about growing your own, there is something about it I think everyone should experience and Steve's book will get you off to a successful start.
There are many ways of sprouting. I happen to like the sproutpeople.com sprouters best of all. Steve's book is a priceless tool for anyone interested in sprouting... it has all kinds of neat tips and suggestions.
Also, one suggests doing a web search on Dr. Budwig's Diet... as most people are seriously deficient in essential fatty acids of the proper type. I take my oil with a little bit of live yogurt.
Anyway... I would not want Steve's book, including his Kitchen Garden book... missing from my shelves!
