I consider this a concept book. It is a very good book to get you started thinking of going off grid. The first part of the title. "Preparing for off grid survival" expresses the contents of the book well. There is not enough depth for this to be a primary source but well enough documented to get you started in the right direction.

I do not take leaving negative feedback lightly and only do so when product is either junk or completely useless. This Book 'Preparing for Off-Grid Survival' is not only a waste of money, its an absurd amateurish general overview of options. No detail, no content.. GARBAGE. As an avid book collector who owns a library and a knowledgeable Prepper/Off the Grid survivalist I would recommend looking elsewhere. This book was written with one thing in mind... TO MAKE MONEY. I highly doubt the Author has any experience with the subject matter rather he took some pamphlets and stuck them together and called this debacle a book. He should be ashamed!
That being said... Amazon has a wide variety of books on this subject worth while. Just not this one. I have bought dozens of books from Amazon and will continue to buy books weekly.

Nicholas Hyde's new book on practical survival off the grid is definitely a worthy buy. It serves as an informative and enthusiastic introduction to the idea of sustainable living. Hyde addresses the many practical issues of this lifestyle change, ranging from building and powering your house to making sure that your children are properly socialized. For anyone who has considered making this change, or even if you're just mildly interested in the subject, this book is a great read. If you are actively planning this change (like me) and THINK that you've done your due diligence (also like me), this book will prove to be a valuable asset to you (and me). This book is not just informative, it's entertaining! Hyde writes with a sense of humor, and that really means something. Who wants to read 50-ish pages of dry, technical instruction manual?

As an avid hunter and angler, who raises a garden and brews his own beer and wine, I can tell you that this man has a great insight to what it really means to be self-sufficient. He makes valid and important points, like the fact that killing a deer to feed one person is impractical and wasteful, or that no matter what you do, your goats WILL eventually sneak out of their pen. I grew up on a farm out in the woods. Before reading this book, I considered myself perfectly prepared to make the commitment to living completely off the grid, and yet this book still brought up new issues that I had never thought about. I am glad that I have had the chance to read this before I made the plunge and bought land, as now I know that I have a few more things to think about when looking at potential buys.

Most important of all, this book is encouraging.

I read this series of short essays in about 10 minutes.
It probably took about that long to write it.
It is not a real book. The author wrote what amounts to a junior high school report on off grid living.
I took a chance for $2.99. I suppose a lot of other people doing the same thing nets the author quite a tidy sum for a few minutes of off the cuff writing.
Don't waste your time.

The book title is an accurate description of the goal of this book, but the contents are little other than a few notes on a bunch of random topics that can be read in less than an hour. There are no pictures or other visual aids, and the words aren't descriptive enough to be useful. Maybe this book is useful for getting a few words that you could use in a search engine, but in itself there's nothing really to learn from this book. Look for something better.

Reading this book really intrigued me on how `living off the grid" is possible amidst today's technological advances. I was actually quite impressed with the way the author discussed in detail how to go about such a big leap of faith - from setting up a home down to being self-reliant in accessing basic necessities. I also like the fact that the author doesn't give a one-track method on how to live off the grid; instead, he gave at least two choices on how you would like to go about it. For example, he gave three different ways on how to build a house .

In reality, though, it might be something that we all should look into as our world is rapidly changing for the worst. I hope that I'll be able to live my life aiming to get closer to this way of living - being independent from monthly bills, staying away from unnecessary gadgets, and being closer to nature. For those of you who are seeking change in life and searching for peace, maybe you should grab this book and take a chance. I found out through this book that it doable.

This book is poor, most of it consists of a few lines about a topic-"it's a good idea to have a panic room where you can go in an emergency"-no discussion as to where this room should be, how it's made etc plus a few links to'research' the issue. The guy obviously has no experience about what he writes.
