As of right now, CPL doesn't have many books on vermicomposting, so this one is a very good resource. As a someone new to vermicomposting, the book seems to be accurate and in agreement with more recent publications and online guides. For additional help, I'd recommend joining a Facebook group/messageboard dedicated to vermicomposting. My major problem with the book is that the authors promote eating earthworms. As a vegetarian who regards her worms as quasi-pets, I find this suggestion downright disturbing, but thankfully it's a small section. Nancarrow and Taylor are least less callous than author Mary Appelhof, who advocates for vermicomposting methods that require starving your worms to death.
