The Humanure Handbook
A Guide to Composting Human Manure, 3rd Edition
There are almost seven billion defecating people on planet Earth, but few who have any clue about how to constructively handle the burgeoning mountain of human crap. The Humanure Handbook, third edition, will amuse you, educate you, and possibly offend you, but it will certainly pertain to you–unless, of course, your bowels never move.
This new edition of The Humanure Handbook is:
- The Tenth Anniversary Edition
- Richly illustrated with eye-candy artwork
- Perfect for reading while sitting on the “throne”
- Revised, improved, and updated
- 256 pages of crap
Reviews and Praise
"This is a cult classic which might strike those without an outhouse as disgusting. But the methods outlined within have the potential to change the ecological fate of the world."--New Yorker Magazine
More Reviews and Praise
"Despite all the books on manure and how to use it, human manure composting is not covered elsewhere, making the Humanure Handbook a fine reference for any who would learn these basics. If you're an avid composter, there's nothing like this on the market."--Midwest Book Review
"Finally we have a comprehensive book on recycling human excrement without chemicals, high technology, or pollution. Well written, practical, and thoroughly researched . . ."--Whole Earth Review
"Almost certain to become a classic in its field. This book should be required reading. . . ."--Countryside Journal
"We think The Humanure Handbook ranks right up there with Rachel Carson's Silent Spring . . ."--HortIdeas
