Format: Hardcover
I'm not in a position where I can put into practice many of the things I'd like to in pursuit of a more sustainable and self sufficient lifestyle. That doesn't stop me devouring books on the subject though; and I have found this to be one of the best. Central to Tom Petherick's ethos is 'understanding that we have enough'. His book is inspirational - as the blurb says - it attempts to 'inspire educate and enourage [the reader]....towards a simple, gentle and sustainable way of living'.

Sufficient contains chapters on: Where are we now? Growing, Animals, and How we live. Each paragraph is further subdivided to provide a wealth of information (for example, the 'Growing' chapter runs through site and design, vegetables, fruit and wild food).

I like Tom Petherick's approach; it doesn't feel preachy and his style is very readable. He provides food for thought and plenty of ideas which are well within reach of most of us.

On a final note - the book is beautiful. Packed with lovely photos and pictures. It is printed on paper from a sustainable source and comes without a dust jacket - very tactile.

This is simply a beautiful book. Inspiring illustrations and writing that makes you feel that by just reading it, you are somehow becoming more "sufficient." Printed on paper from a sustainable source, it practises what it preaches.

There is quite a bit about "Grow Your Own" and allottments - all really useful information!

I have really enjoyed reading this book. the illustrations and photographs really make this a beautiful book. The information is good, but by no means complete, so would be good for beginners to read and get some insight into life as a smallholder and begin inspiring dreams of a sufficient way of life.
An asset to anyones bookshelf, if only for its visual appeal.

A great book for anyone seeking to live a more self-sufficient life. This book has everything you need to know about getting started, plus the author shares a lot of stories from their past and makes it a very fun and informative read. I highly recommend.
