The Power of Just Doing Stuff: How Local Action Can Change the World
The Power of Just Doing Stuff: How Local Action Can Change the World
by Rob Hopkins
Edition: Paperback
Price: 6.29

5.0 out of 5 stars The economic case for local action, 25 July 2013
Along with the arguments for local action based on peak (cheap) oil and climate change, which Rob Hopkins explains in his earlier Transition books, The Power of Just Doing Stuff presents the case for building financial, as well as food and energy resilience in our local communities. He gives plenty of examples based on the success of a growing number of local currencies, and develops the theme of community action through many examples of local food, energy and self-help initiatives in UK and around the world.

A friend of mine involved in our local community energy scheme was recently asked by his employer, "Why are you always smiling when you talk about your project?". Share the fun and get several copies!

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 29 Mar 2011
Does the job I bought it for, which is to see whether and if so how a tablet device can be useful in between a smartphone and a desktop PC. Found guidance for installing Google Market, followed by favourite apps, ebook readers. So far succeeded in attaching USB mouse, still working on mouse+keyboard+monitor setup, also GPS dongle. Screen movements are not as smooth as iPad but then it's less than half the price!
