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! Couldn't he just put a chapter entitled Alfalfa- so when I want to sprout it there's all I need to know. Instead, it's all mixed in a big salad, so alfalfa is on page 11, 41, 48,58,...70, 159...etc. Just to find out how long to soak a certain seed takes me half hour browsing through pages.

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.

Has good descriptions of the sprouts and their flavors. Discusses the need for cooking some sprouts - mostly the bean and pea ones.

Of all the books I read when I wanted to start sprouting, this one from the 70s that my local library had was the most memorable, because of Steve's enthusiasm and sense of mission. If his spirit could leave such an impression through this little (but very thorough) book, how much more must he be mis ...more
