I would say, don't waste your money on this!I bought this book based on reviews of how "great" it is for beginners. Well, I have enough of the PC essays, commentary and predictable "takes" on nutrition. I wanted straight-forward step-by-step info on sprouting to use on the new sprouting jar I just bought, not 4 chapters of dialogue (ad nauseaum) of philosophies, beliefs, mythology and esoterica on the nutrition, multitude and PC use of sprouts; "Sprouts and your sex life," "sprouts since the beginning of time," etc. So I had to get to chapter 5 to even begin, and I am still not ready to begin. Why is it that everyone writing beginner's books has to preface and infuse them with their own philosophy, and assume that it is God-given that they puff every comment or lesson with it. This is hardly what I would call a book for beginners - - - maybe if one is a nutritionist it might be of interest, but I was falling asleep at two sentences in. I wanted to learn how to sprout, not more verbal effluvium on things I already know, agree or disagree with, don't understand or have no interest in yet.Just give me the basics FIRST, please.I looked long and hard before choosing a book and I am HIGHLY disappointed so far.If you are a beginner, I suggest you keep on looking past this supposed book "for Beginners." OR, google "Sprouting" and go to the online sprouting "school" pages.I REALLY DO NOT CARE about the history, advantage, etc. until I have tried it myself, and I cannot do that until I AM TOLD HOW TO venture into this. With this book all I wanted to do was quit before I even started.
