it was amazing

I love this book, it makes so much sense if you can read it with an open mind and just not think about the crap. We've already incorporated the manure pack idea into our chicken coop and are looking into using some of his other suggestions. Logsdon also illustrates how our ways of disposing large amounts of manure, esp. in large animal lots and human sewer systems, is a wasteful, useless practice that does more to waste water than it does to dispose of crap. Logsdon writes in a disarmingly funny way, fully cognizant of how manure (animal and human) is a subject that few want to discuss, but a subject that we should all know more about. If we could be more efficient and sustainable about how we use our manures, we could potentially save ourselves from commercial fertilizers and continually wasting millions of gallons of water throughout the "developed" world. This book now sits proudly on my shelf, I've already read it twice and I'm sure I will refer to it many times in the future.
