    Best book on composting!

    'Let it Rot' is the best booklet on composting I have ever read. (I have had two copies for about 20 years). It is concise, easy to read and follow, gives just about every type and kind of composting there is, with the descriptions and instructions on making your own compost. But that is not all - the book is truly inspirational, letting the reader truly understand the mechanisms of the composting process, especially how very natural it all is, and how easy it is for anyone to make fertilizer out of those ubiquitous lawn clippings, weeds, prunings, hay, leaves, and other organic material that we tend to waste by throwing it all out in the trash. Just reading the book makes you want to go out and compost right away! With your own compost, you make what we gardeners call, 'black gold' - the very best fertilizer of all! And it is free.

    Great intro to composting

    I thought the subject was well presented. There is enough info to get the average person comfortable to start composting in their yard. There was some more in depth info as well for those of us who want a little more than bare bones. Written in a light and easy style.

    If you buy one book on composting this should be it!

    I own a number of books about composting but this is the best I've read for the beginning composter. It contains sufficient detail to give you a good understanding of the why's, when's, and how-to's without being overly technical. Every aspect of composting is covered from how to build a number of composting bins and which are the best free materials to include in your compost, to which compost activators are best.

    This book is okay, but not if you are trying to find information on compost and decomposting

    This book basically tells you about how to bulid compost piles . Like what to and not to put in the compost piles. It even tells you how to build a compost pile. This book I think needs to be more about compost and decomposting. Otherwise it is alright!
