This book has almost no details.

With a lack of information aside the most annoying and frustrating part of this book for me was trying to read through the author's own personal opinions.
R. Henderson
It's very simple and easy to read.

I wouldn't pay over $5 for this book, its very general and basic coverage is not that helpful. The information is fair and accurate, but not specific. Not a $15 read.

A handy book, covers a lot of material but not in great depth. Certainly worth buying as an overview for people considering freeing themselves from the grid.

Well written. A good approach to educating those who need the very basic knowledge of the subject. Not writtem using technical terms, but using down-to-earth, everyday language we can all understand. I would highly recommend this book to novice and veteran alike.

Learn from my mistake and don't spend your money on this book. There are many other books out there that give better information. The author presents many topics without going into any depth.

Having solar panels since 1976 (heats our water) thought this might give us a boost as to ways we can further our use of natural resoursces, the info is basic and really not very helpful. It's not specific and frankly his political views don't belong in this book. Living "green" so to speak isn't new and has nothing to do with politcal left/right views. Not sure what planet he lives on but I'm pretty sure "the left" is not the only group that likes to save money and use natural resources. Downloaded it for free so don't feel jipped however was really hoping for DYI plans to save $. Won't find it in this book.

This book has almost no details. Some alright concepts are mentioned but this is not useful for anyone with even general knowledge of the subject. All concepts or topics are quickly defined before moving onto the next subject.

Color Name: Paperback
Good introduction but don't expect a lot of detail. Almost every imaginable concept is mentioned, and there are some good ideas mentioned, but there's insufficient detail to act on any of them. There is a section of recommended books, links, etc but it's standalone at the back of the book rather than being referenced within the body of the topic being discussed. Case studies are interesting but not especially detailed. Overall this book is thought-provoking and will serve as a jump-off to more detailed references/resources.
