The Balance Point took first place in the Science/Nature/Environment category in the the 2018 TopShelf Indie Book Awards! It also won first place in the 2019 Book Excellence Awards in the Sustainability category. It was also a finalist in the Current Events/Social Change category in the Top Shelf Indie Book Awards.

It also took the Bronze in the 2019 Independent Publisher Book Awards Category: Essay/Creative Non-Fiction. The IPPY award is the largest book awards contest in the world.
The Balance Point is a story of a search for something so mysterious that the main character doesn't even know what it is, or how to recognize it if he finds it. It touches on science, mathematics, economics, religion, and spirituality, in a manner that is both illuminating and disturbing.
The Humanure Handbook 4th Edition won a gold medal in the 2019 Readers' Favorite Awards. Readers' favorite reviewer stated, "This book is a must-have for any library. Trust me." It is also a finalist in the Foreword Magazine Indies Book of the Year Awards in two categories: Nature and Science. The book has sold 70,000 print copies in the U.S. alone, been translated in whole or in part into 20 languages and has been published in foreign editions on four continents.
Not only does the book address what to do with human turds, but it is also a priceless manual for anyone involved in composting, gardening, or even basic survival skills. There is no other book like this in print!
