"...no one else I know of is saying... the things Michael Bunker is saying in this book. It is an incredibly thought provoking read... what he is saying is not only contra-mundum, it's right on" --Herrick Kimball, The Deliberate Agrarian
"Michael Bunker is not anti-technology and he is not a Luddite... he dares to question whether modern conveniences are necessary, and he's quick to name the cost of dependence: slavery." --Gnowfglins.com

Now onto the meat and bones, he trains your mind to see the world differently. This isn't your typical rar macho man, gonna get the hunt on hur dur camp through winters of 20 below manual. This is not some blueprint for how to make it work, and the reasons why, as he explains in the book, is that everyone has different resources and comfort levels. This is a solid body of work to get you to think. It is a primer education on how to tailor your own life. It is so solid in it's educational value, I can't wait to make my children read it. He does sprinkle religion throughout the book after the hard core Bible banging beginning, but even I accept, without the need for Bible verses, that he is 100 percent correct in all that he states in relation as to what society was, is and can be.
Dragging through the first 50 pages is the hardest part. After that he goes on to explain in exquisite detail of what can be done, at all levels of off the grid survival. He makes off the grid obtainable in your mind and then pushes you even further out of your comfort zone to consider having no electricity or petroleum products...to really living completely grid free. It is a gentle and persistent nudge throughout the book, which others call redundant, but I find completes the work well.Read more ›
