"This is one of those books that you feel would change the world if only everyone would read it. I wish I could afford to buy the book for everyone on the planet. I for one am grateful to the author, Joseph Jenkins for writing this updated version. I take my hat off to you Joseph. A job well done. What a lot of work you put into this book!"
"Absolutely phenomenal work! You have done such a superb job, I am continually amazed by your impeccable research and wisdom gained from your long and critical user experience. Reclaiming the use of the word compost, which is so widely misused in sanitation circles, seems so key."
"When I first picked up a copy of the Humanure Handbook, it was out of a sense of obligation—I thought it was going to be a really technical manual about how to deal with our shit. But I was surprised to find it incredibly entertaining -- I actually read it cover to cover and found the entire book completely delightful and totally fascinating. For those that haven’t read this book yet, it is full of great stories and science and history."
"Joseph writes from practical, hands on knowledge. Experience is they key. Many other authors have tried, but no one can top what Joseph shares. I recommend the book highly to anyone. It’s the future folks, it’s something many people do not like to think about but start thinking soon, if you do not, you will not be prepared."
"I am about to add the 4th edition of The humanure Handbook into our public catalog here at the Cleveland Public Library. While flipping through the book, I was sad to see a depiction of a not-so-pleasant interaction with a librarian in Arizona, and wanted you to know that not all public libraries are so closed to giving their patrons access to a large variety of viewpoints and resources. Please know that Cleveland Public has not only the newest edition of your work (2019), but also the 2005 and 1994 editions. Also, you may be interested to know that the Library of Congress also has some of the editions from the 1990s."
