5.0 out of 5 stars Medium Term Self Sufficiency Beckons . . ., 10 Jun. 2005
For those with any amount of land who want it to be productive and efficient, here is a book that:
1. Addresses low energy living holistically (from houses to heating to food production)
2. Recommends approaches to growing food all year without overuse of machinery
3. Chooses crops and approaches that fit with human-powered activity
4. Sets you on the right path on nearly any issue of sustainable living
Excellent reading for those who wish to prepare for the day when the world will not be so comfortable.

5.0 out of 5 stars You want the truth? You can't handle the truth!, 28 May 2004
It is a remarkable understatement by the author to say "The subject I have chosen is not particularly cheery"
Well written, self evidently true and with a goodly amount of references to back up what would otherwise, to many readers, be unbelievable.
Mr Heinberg makes the history of the world (from an energy perspective) into a rip roaring tale. His well founded predictions for the too-near future, and suggestions for living round off an excellent work.
This book has changed my life. His view of the future is not how I had hoped to spend my retirement, but it appears we have no choice in the matter.
