Most Helpful Customer Reviews

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Dave Murray on July 22, 2012
Much of the information in the book seems dated but don't let that make you think that it is not valuable. In this day and age where the average American can use magical technology that he does not understand, knowledge of how to do things for yourself is becoming lost. If a solar flare or EMP took down the power grid for an extended period of time and you had to live like people did 100 years ago, could you?
