(Ten of the colored pictures show compost in various stages of decomposition.) In addition to helping to save our landfills & improving our environment, by following the detailed instructions contained in this book, homeowners can easily learn how to make & use the best natural soil conditioner/fertilizer on earth. Dr. Sam Cotner, Associate Dept. Head & Extension Program Leader, Texas A&M University, says "It is extremely well-written (and it) contains much-needed information." The Master Gardeners International Corporation wrote, "This book should be useful to would-be composters everywhere." A review in NEIL SPERRY'S GARDENS magazine reported, "Beginning gardeners & students involved in projects about recycling or ecology would do well to use Whitehead's book as a resource."
