This book is so driving me crazy that I want to re-write it. It's 200 pages, and all I want to know about sprouts can be put on 50!

This was allright. The author is a bit too energetic for my tastes, but he certainly advocates strongly for a vision of food cultivation that would seem pretty pleasant if you could make it all work. I wish the book was better organised, however. Sproutman goes down too many side-discussions and enjoys his little side-comments too much to make this a valuable reference tool. Perhaps when I'm sprouting more myself I will change my mind.
Good resource for sprout descriptions, not really for sprouting methods.

For sprouting methods, the author mostly describes what he thinks is the best way - baskets, and bags, so not as helpful in the different sprouting methods.

Has good descriptions of the sprouts and their flavors. Discusses the need for cooking some sprouts - mostly the bean and pea ones.
This book covers great information on the different methods of sprouting. I didn't care for the format it was written, it jumped around instead of being a smooth read.

a little too zealous for me, but the information was good.
Helpful in my new endeavor, but rather dated.
