Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
Some might say this book compels one to dive headlong into human excrement. Although there may be some truth to this, more discriminating readers will notice that the book is chock full of information about composting, gardening sustainability, waste reduction, resource recovery, public sanitation, sewage treatment, & conscious living within the natural environment. The controversial subject of recycling human manure for gardening & agricultural purposes is boldly dealt with from historical, philosophical & scientific perspectives. Readers will also notice that this book is appropriate for today's environmentally concerned society, & is written in laypeople's terms by a humanure composting practitioner. Some say it contains information that is critically important, even revolutionary, & is necessary reading for anyone who defecates. Especially of interest to environmentalists, organic gardeners & farmers, sustainabilists, permaculturists, survivalists, homesteaders, recyclers, teachers, public health & sanitation people, municipal planners, people without electricity or running water, & anyone interested in a unique topic that fundamentally relates to every human being on planet earth. 198 pages, paperbound, fully illustrated, indexed, referenced, glossary.

Review:
"Well written, practical, and thoroughly researched, this self-published book is built on nearly twenty years of experience by the authors, who tell us about every aspect of dealing with excrement on the home-scale level. Everything is covered: privy designs of all types, sanitation, and composting. Well organized throughout..."

David Katz, Whole Earth Review, spring 1996
