Product description

Review

A world-changing book, an adventure in politics, religion and haberdashery --Alex Somerset An illuminating and funny testament to one man's attempt to survive economic meltdown, tackle climate change, and enter the kingdom of heaven by making his own clothes. John-Paul shows us that we can almost literally re-make our future and we can do it with a smile on our face. Tony Rollinson, Permaculture Magazine. It seems, and I'm grinding my jaws as I type this, that his time has come. --Harriet Green (the author's wife), The Observer

Combines the cheerful idealism of Tom Hodgkinson with the well-meaning cluelessness of Danny Wallace, and a commitment to the DIY ethic not seen since William Morris started stringing his first loom. --Mark Bailey

A world-changing book, an adventure in politics, religion and haberdashery. One day it will be recognised as a classic. --Alex Somerset

About the Author

John-Paul Flintoff's writing has attracted compliments from the documentary maker Michael Moore, the stage and film director Richard Eyre, and the late Nobel-winner Harold Pinter ('Very good. Very funny... In fact, it made me laugh'). As well as writing he has worked as a bin man, scuba diver, poet, taxi driver, assistant undertaker, tailor, gardener, high-wire window cleaner, very amateur boxer and rat catcher.
