This book was awesome and inspiring in so many ways, and it's very instructional about things that I really needed instruction on. Now I really want chickens...

They are a bit more invested in the whole concept than I am, but it's not written in a way that requires you to commit whole-hog to their system; you can take what you want or need and leave the rest as filler. It was all really interesting, and fun to read. ( )

Doesn't stand out from the rest of the genre except that it's straightforward and no frills. Good starter section for milk processing - yogurt, cheese, butter. Best idea was using stacked tires to grow potatoes. THAT is genius. ( )

Unlike many self-sufficiency books, this one isn't preachy, unrealistic, or dogmatic. Instead, it's honest and often humorous.

This volume shows city dwellers how to enjoy a more satisfying lifestyle and plant seeds for the sustainable future of our cities, homesteading by growing food anywhere, composting with worms, preserving and fermenting foods, diverting greywater to your garden, and cleaning your house without toxins. The authors provide a detailed, lucid, step-by-step, blueprint that takes what seems to be an overwhelming task of historical reversal and transforms it into an open-ended series of tangible, human-scaled projects.… (more)
