Recommends it for: all the people i love
must read for people who ever envision a mass power outage. When California had it's power failures a few years ago, i read this book to prepare myself for the worst. it's got some great ideas, is humorous, and easy to read. Very zen as well...LET GO of our need for AMENITIES!

not exactly what i had in mind in regards to living off the grid

It is a good book if you are looking for a quick solution, but does not get too in-depth with each topic
