• HortIdeas: "We think the Humanure HandBook ranks right up there with Rachel Carson's Silent Spring as one of the most important environmental exposes of all time."
• Midwest Book Review "Despite all the books on manure and how to use it, human manure composting is not covered elsewhere, making THE HUMANURE HANDBOOK: A GUIDE TO COMPOSTING HUMAN MANURE a fine reference for any who would learn these basics. If you're an avid composter, there's nothing like this on the market."
• Whole Earth Review: “Finally we have a comprehensive book on recycling human excrement without chemicals, high technology, or pollution. Well written, practical, and thoroughly researched..."
• Countryside Journal: “. . .almost certain to become a classic in its field.” “This book should be required reading . . . and not only for homesteaders.”
