Viable self sufficiency
« on: May 17, 2016, 08:53:02 am »
Got mine yesterday and, although I haven't read it all cover to cover, from what I see so far this is an excellent book for smallholders and those who are considering this lifestyle.  Lots of photos,  some very graphic!
Well done Dot and Tim and family.

It's great - lots and lots of info. I defy anyone to read this book and not think, at least once, "I did not know that" or "That's a good idea"  :thumbsup:

It's really nerve wracking waiting to see the response to the book. We're really pleased with it and hope everyone else will be.

A small favour - anyone who likes it, please go and post good review on Amazon - this sells books better than anything else.

Sad, but true.
