I'll second the positive mark for this book. For anyone looking to learn about composting in greater depth, what you can throw in and what you can't, how big, what method to use, etc., this is an excellent resource. It might be a bit too detailed for some, but that's sort of the point.

This is a very complete and informative book. Anyone interested in gardening, organic or not , would be well advised to consult this book often. I would go so far as to say this should be the first book any conscientious,beginning or well-seasoned gardener, should read. If one was not organic prior to reading this book, then they would find it much easier to change over after just one successful batch of compost! Compost and chemicals are polar opposites and after smelling good rich compost, one would never use chemicals again. Many good ideas on materials to use. types of compost 'piles',structures and equipment.
