Not just for beginners

Will provoke thought for both newbies and old hands. And it's fun to listen to.
I have composted a truckload a week for six years to build soil for my market garden. I sell some produce to restaurants. And I have read several books about composting, learned from this book. A number of times, I had to pause the book because he got me thinking. And I love his "just do it" attitude.

A little over the top for me.

It lives up to its title, but is a little over the top for me. By everything he means dead goats heads, urine and human feces. I like composting but.......

Very informative and entertaining. I was surprised

Would you consider the audio edition of Compost Everything: The Good Guide to Extreme Composting to be better than the print version?

Absolutely! Didn't know i could get so involved.

Who was your favorite character and why?

There was only 1 character. and he was my favorite.

What does David the Good bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Great flow of words and I enjoyed the quality and tone. Nothing to complain about.

What did you learn from Compost Everything: The Good Guide to Extreme Composting that you would use in your daily life?

I learned that I will have to listen to this again because there is so much useful information I can't remember it all! But I look forward to hearing it again!

Any additional comments?

I hope more books are made by this author. and read by him as well. I will be searching for more books about gardening by him. Also I will check out his YouTube Channel.

Best gardening handbook for the money!

This is one of the best gardening handbooks for the money. Small easy to read and humorous to boot. David the Good helps you stretch your dollar by using techniques that are cheap, they WORK and are easy to use. I own all his paper back books and buying his audio books as well.Every garden library needs a copy of each of his books.

informative and entertaining

David the Good shares his experience with humor, without getting raunchy. Refreshing that I don't have to keep this book out of the hands of my children, but can also stay awake through the whole thing. It's amazing the number of options and amount of information he can pack into such a quick read.
