Recommends it for: People who own their own home
The author included a few fanciful pet stories along with a lot of technical information and black and white pictures about using solar and wind power, making it a unique read.

This book was pretty bad. It reads like a kids book full of anecdotes. Overexplains simple concepts, and didn't give me the information I was hoping for. This is not a book about wind and solar power as much as it is a book to persuade you into "going green" which I'm assuming anyone interested enough to throw down $25 for a book on wind energy... already is.

You kind of want to sock this guy in the mouth for a while before you get used to the humor and writing style, but the information seems sound and de-mystifies many practical aspects of renewable energy for the home.

Funny little allegory at the beginning followed by really good, practical information. If you are thinking of going "off grid" or "grid-tied" this is a must.
