Great basic information about how to begin composting in your back yard. This is definitely for the novice composter, as some of the information seemed very much "common sense". The only real drawback to this book was that it was apparently meant to sell a product for composting, and tells the reader how this product would make things so much easier. I would have rather seen more general information on how to build your own compost bin or compost tumbler, and less solicitous promotion of their own product. Worthwhile for the absolute beginner, though.
