When Technology Fails: A Manual for Self-Reliance, Sustainability, and Surviving the Long Emergency Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

If ever there was one book to have when the lights go out, When Technology Fails is it. In this revised edition--the first edition was written pre-9/11 when global warming was still considered a fringe idea--author Mat Stein offers readers skills to make them more self-sufficient, sustainable, and prepared for any climatic disaster, as well as simple green building techniques.No single book can teach all there is to know, so Stein has included a resource guide at the end of each chapter to direct readers toward other resources, including books, web sites, and suppliers of the materials discussed.

The book covers a wide range of topics--everything from green building, renewable energy, and emergency preparations to basic self-healing and self-reliance techniques to survive crises. This new edition also includes a chapter on joining and building sustainable communities, ending the book on a positive proactive note.
