Synopsis:

Written in laypeople's terms by a humanure composting practitioner with twenty years' experience, this book is for anyone interested in a unique topic that is fundamentally related to every human being on planet Earth. The second edition of The Humanure Handbook is completely revised, expanded, and updated, but retains that element of improbable humor that made this book an underground classic. This fascinating, one-of-a-kind book tells you how to safely recycle human manure, and includes color photographs of humanure-compost gardens, listings for international commercial compost toilet sources and manufacturers, and a list of backyard composting bin and compost thermometer retailers. This new edition also contains a chapter on alternative graywater systems; illustrated, step-by-step instructions for building a simple, low-cost, composting toilet for household, camp, or emergency use; current information about community-level composting; and the latest material on composting microbiology.


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
