Composting: The Complete Gardeners Guide teaches the listener how composting is not only a great choice from an environmental perspective, but it is a great way to have great mulch for your garden. Lots of persons feel that they do not have the time to compost but with the right tools like some great worms, the process is a pretty self-sufficient one. Everyone is trying to be more environmentally conscious and this is just one way in which it can be done pretty easily.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
I'm sorry, I generally skip negative reviews as the internet is flooded with them, but the title of this book is inaccurate.
A more precise title would have been 'High-Level Introduction to Worm Farms'. Certainly not "Composting: The COMPLETE Gardeners guide". To say that title is a stretch would be too generous. I feel some publisher got to the author and they changed the name to sell more books.
I wanted a deep dive into Composting, getting into the Carbon/Nitrogen ratios and microbial lifeforms that help breakdown soil quickly and safely, but this book never went below a topical summary.
Even the worm farming concepts were only briefly touched upon.
The last 15 minutes of a 60 minute book were spent telling me not to invest too much of my savings in advertising if I wanted to start a Production worm farm...because it might not be too successful at first.... What??
I'm sorry, but this book was not the Complete guide to anything, let alone composting.
How could the performance have been better?
I thought the narrator was a computer for the first 20 minutes. Her pronunciation was so choppy, I didn't think it was a real person. This made everything completely distracting and hard to follow. It felt very unnatural.
