    Great to use as a reference book or a quick read to learn how to compost this easy to read composting book has earned a permanent spot on my book shelf. And for 4 bucks how can you go wrong. It has illustrations, charts and a great index for quick reference. It has taught me a number of things I had not thought of even though I have been composting for years.
