My spouse and I are two passionated gardener. We compost everything we can but the idea to compost human manure was foreign to us.This book is great, funny and very informative. This approach to handle human or animal waste made much more sens than what is done right now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wish I could give it more than five stars! Nov. 16 2007
By woodcutter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Everyone should read this book, even if they have no intention or ability to use a humanure composting system. It provides a wealth of information on a subject that has been ignored for too long...human waste - how to dispose of it in a sensible, sustainable, practical, useful manner. We haven't flushed a toilet in this house in eight months, since we got this book and built our own sawdust toilet and composting box out back. We had a serious drought here this summer and our well was REAL low, but we had no problems because we weren't FLUSHING FOUR GALLONS OF CLEAN DRINKING WATER UNDERGROUND each time we went in the bathroom. I always wondered why we eliminate in water, anyway. And it doesn't stink, the compost box doesn't stink, it's simple and straightforward and clean and the humanure toilet's time has come! Everybody who comes in our house gets dragged into the bathroom by my husband to meet our new humanure toilet! Then I drag them outside to meet my wonderful compost box! So far we've had one convert, a couple with a camp who were using a stinking old outhouse, and they are just thrilled with the idea of using a humanure toilet next summer when they move back to camp. As a bonus, our electric bill dropped substantially, just because the water pump doesn't have to kick on every time a toilet is flushed. Buy this book, read it, start using a humanure toilet, tell all your friends, lend the book to your friends, do it now! Then read Joe Jenkins' other book, "Balance Point."

The Humanure Handbook tells you how to compost it, why to compost it, and gives you all you need to know to get started. He's got a lot input on your output. If you've ever wondered why our society poops and pees in perfectly good drinking water and then spends lots of money to buy bottled water, this book's for you. This is the third copy I've purchased because I want to share it with friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars we are all earth in the end March 31 2011
By brian carter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I found Jenkins' book about 12 years ago,but I bought a commercially sold "composting" toilet to have something more official looking to show the building inspector.Therein lies the main hurdle to any sane treatment of human waste-the horror that most of society must overcome to even talk about the subject.To me this book belongs in the category of books that should start a revolution.Sadly,it won't because humans are not so enlightened.Still,for the few and the brave who honor common sense over cultural phobias,this book will send you on your way with a new sense of freedom and some damn good fertilizer.

5.0 out of 5 stars I now have a composting toilet behind the house June 20 2007
By Tracy K. Woodard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This was our primary source material for building and maintaining our composting toilet. Works great, saves on water, makes for good plant food, and only smells like sawdust inside.

5.0 out of 5 stars in use for a year Dec 4 2011
By amichael - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have not read the update version, but I did get a hold of a copy when it was still free on his site. Couldn't be much more simple than this. Poop, cover with sawdust, dump in compost pile, clean buckets, reuse. We've used in our yurt for last year and nothing but good things to say about it. Takes as much time to empty and clean 3 buckets every couple weeks as it would to clean 3 toilets. Wonder why someone never came up with this in all the years of outhouse use!
