Holy Shit: Managing Manure To Save Mankind
by Gene Logsdon

OK, maybe it’s a bit of a racy title, but in truth there’s no better way to describe Gene Logsdon’s new book of homage to the backside of agriculture.

Given the food industry’s increasing dependence on chemical fertilizers, the shift to large-scale farming operations, and a national soil that has been consistently depleted and not nourished as it once regularly was, Lodgsdon argues that if we do not return to the age-old practice of turning manure into fertilizer to help feed a growing population, we will all be in deep shit.
