I used this book as a text in my Renewable Energy Systems course and learned more practical knowledge from it than I think I have in my 4 years at Cornell! Highly recommended and I hope people will buy it so we can get it back in print!
The book remains an excellent handbook for the keen DIY homesteader or self reliance practitioner. I love the home-made solar water heating schematics and examples. There could be more detail on dwelling design and construction, but since this topic is well catered for with loads of great books available, I will forgive it.
And it has one of the grooviest book titles ever! Buy it now, then pull it apart and get it ring-bound. The glue is probably falling apart on most copies by now anyway, and you'll need to lay it flat while building the many projects detailed within.
