Everything is very easy to understand. There are more recipes than I expected, and most of them useful! Sandor's writing style makes me feel like a good friend is sharing recipes with me. Casual, comfortable, never overwhelming nor over simplified. The pace of the information is very easy, there isn't so much thrown out at once that it's difficult to digest it all, nor is there a lot of boring information to "skim over". His style makes it so easy to see that it's not a difficult thing, and anyone can give it a try. He is realistic about materials, never expecting anyone to purchase any elaborate equipment and making multiple equipment suggestions when possible. What I love the most about this book is the very strong emphasis on trying without fear. What's the worst that can happen? It won't turn out, you will have to throw it away and try again. Not the end of the world! The first batch of sauerkraut my teenage daughter and I made was so amazing! The second batch ended up in the trash. I might have been discouraged by that failure on my second attempt, but Sandor's wonderful outlook on failure reminded me it's no big deal. Stuff happens. I will be trying so many more of these recipes, time and space (and my toddlers) permitting. Not only is this healthy, especially for people with IBS and other digestive issues, but self sufficient. I like being able to provide for myself and my family, and not having to relay on grocery stores for everything.

Katz has written a socially-concious, informative, fun guide to fermenting basically anything. Not only do all of his recipies actually work, but reading Wild Fermentation-- which has supplied me with incredible saurkraut, pickles, honey wine, sourdough bread, and much more-- is like reading the biography of a close friend. Part cook-book, part save-the-planet-and-save-ourselves guide, this book gives anyone who's interested a wonderful treat.

This book is a rare gem. It contains all of the practical experience needed to ferment your own foods and beverages. Yogurt, kefir, country wine, T'ej, hooch, and much much more. It is all in here. Fermentation is such a fun hobby. This book is for the germo-phobe as well. Mircobes are our friends, not our enemies.

I bought this book to learn more about a process that I knew little about. I love this book. It not only explains , but also inspires. I recommend this book to all who are interested in fermentation. I have already tried some of his concoctions, and i just love this book, plain and simple.
