This is a great introduction to composting with lots of useful tips on what to add and various types of composting. I wish there had been a little more information on compost pests like centipedes and why these aren't welcome in the compost. Read full review

I really liked this book... got the 1970s? version at Goodwill. It has a lot of good info without being too scientific/jargon-y. I feel like I have a good grasp on what makes a good compost pile now. Read full review
