Holy S**t: Managing Manure to Save Mankind

Title notwithstanding, this book is short on sensationalism and long on common sense and good humor with practical observations about sustainability and economy.  Pass this one up if the mere thought of tiptoeing around meadow muffins makes you faint.  The average urbanite may not be able to implement much in this book, but it could give one cred at the local farmers' market.  You'll learn which pitchfork is best for the job, whether the author has a composting toilet, how to toilet-train a pig... you get the idea!  Make sure to check out chapter 16 for consideration of methane and its sources - and be sure you check out Holy S**t: Managing Manure to Save Mankind @the library!
