Publisher Comments:

“I dream of a better world,” writes zinester andHow and Why author Matte Resist in the intro to his new book. He continues, “To me DIY culture is about grabbing a little piece of that dream.” What follows over the course of the next 176 pages is Matte doing what all dreamers must do—waking up from his dream, opening his eyes, and confronting what roadblocks and hurdles lie between him and his goal. Matte does this by laying down chapter upon chapter of blueprints for a better world. A sequel to our do-it-yourself handbook Making Stuff and Doing Things, How and Why gives us detailed, engaging, easy-to-use info on bicycles, home and garage, gardening, educating children, musical instruments, and the all-inclusive “everything else” section. If you dream of taking back your life and building a better world, How and Why might be your new best friend.

Synopsis:

In the follow-up book to the award-winning Making Stuff & Doing Things, Matte Resist (Resist Zine) compiles practical information around bicycles, gardening, home-repair, seed-saving, and many other sustainable crafts that will suit you well after the coming economic collapse.

I am a HUGE fan of Microcosm Publishing to begin with and regularly order from them several times a year. Having already owned Making Stuff and Doing Things by them, I was excited to order another DIY book, especially from Matte Resist, of Resist Zine and Resist Instrument Works. This book did not disappoint...with sections titled Bicycles, Home and Garage, Gardening, Educating Your Children, Musical Instruments, and Everything Else, it covers a lot of subjects that interest me. I really liked the section about buying a house...it follows Matte and his wife Rachael's experience buying their house. Easy to read, very interesting, and incredibly helpful....I highly recommend it.
