Review quote

"We think The Humanure Handbook ranks right up there with Rachel Carson's Silent Spring . . ."--HortIdeas "Almost certain to become a classic in its field. This book should be required reading. . . ."--Countryside Journal "This is a cult classic which might strike those without an outhouse as disgusting. But the methods outlined within have the potential to change the ecological fate of the world."--New Yorker Magazine "Finally we have a comprehensive book on recycling human excrement without chemicals, high technology, or pollution. Well written, practical, and thoroughly researched . . ."--Whole Earth Review "Despite all the books on manure and how to use it, human manure composting is not covered elsewhere, making the Humanure Handbook a fine reference for any who would learn these basics. If you're an avid composter, there's nothing like this on the market."--Midwest Book Review
