Cesar's Way: The Natural, Everyday Guide to Understanding and Correcting Common Dog Problems
No quick fix - his "way" requires connecting with nature
Cesar's TV show amazed me how the dog owners always blame their dog for having all sorts of "human behavior" type problems. Then Cesar rehabilitates the dog from the sick behavior of the owners only to find they are unable to change their ways. EXAMPLE: One woman had a hyperactive miniature pinscher that was totally out of control. She never exercised the dog, let alone trained him. Cesar ...

Let it Rot!: The Gardener's Guide to Composting (Third Edition)
Storey Publishing, LLC, 1982
nothing rotten about this book
I've been composting for about six months, as a completely ignorant amateur. I just piled up all of my lawn trimmings and vegetable kitchen scraps out next to the garden - it worked, but I needed to know more. Who knew I knew so little!
