Positioning/Target Audience

Toilet Alternatives will take an expansive view, including all non-flush toilet designs, and any flush toilet design with creative features which yield unusual, useful benefits. It will be a very practical manual, with all the information needed to make an informed choice between thirty or more options, and with all the clear, detailed nuts and bolts information needed to build twenty or so of them.
Once available, it would be the only book most people would need for their composting toilet information needs, except for specialized reference works on narrow aspects of the topic. Toilet Alternatives will represent a global perspective drawn from four years of international travel, and current information and resources from all over.
The book will not include detailed scientific analyses, or lengthy anti-flush toilet diatribes, neither of which are necessary for a general audience, and both of which are well covered by existing literature. Toilet Alternatives will endeavor to win the trust of all types of readers with a balanced presentation of the strengths and weaknesses of each system.
