this book is great for the beginning compost lady (or man.) But who cares about men?!

Fantastic book if you know nothing about composting. Our compost pile has decomposed evenly and with an earthy aroma ever since I started reading this. Not all sections will apply but the information provided is both interesting and invaluable. Excellent buy for a novice composter or for anyone just wanting to learn more.

This guide to composting was a bit basic, ironically moreso than other "for Dummies" books I've read. I wanted to see a bit more about types of containers, for example. Other composting books I have read were more thorough about types of items to put in your compost. This book seems more like a quick start manual, which just wasn't what I was looking for.

Now I want to get a giant thing of worms and have them ravenously devour my food scraps.
