Foster was a kick to read, and probably the most down-to-earth yet perfectly scientific and practical description of this glorious process I've ever read. I sat down one day and read it cover to cover, it was that good. At least, to a mad gardener.

A splendid introductory text that covers multiple approaches to composting (cold, hot, Indore, CAT) without taking sides in the argument over which method is better or best. The author, Clare Foster, is from the UK, so resources and references naturally target UK readers and so aren't immediately useful for American readers. Nevertheless, the instructions and explanations are very useful to anyone just getting started composting. This title is essential reading for gardeners new to composting.

After explaining what compost is and why composting is useful and popular, Foster offers plenty how-to information in a casual, conversational style that is still packed with information. If you are just getting started composting, get this book. I was able to read in a single two-hour sitting.
