The Self Suficient-ish Bible by Andy & Dave Hamilton
***

"The green twins, Andy and Dave Hamilton, founders of the hugely popular website http://www.selfsufficientish.com/, will give you advice on how to live in a more frugal way, whilst still enjoying life to the full.  They offer a positive and fun approach, accepting that adjusting every aspect of our lives is too overwhelming for most of us-hence self-sufficientish."

This guidebook is organized into four categories:  home, outdoors, food, and lifestyle.  The information is straight-forward and practical, which is usually right up my alley.  For some reason, though, I couldn't bring myself to really dive into this book.  Perhaps it's a bit too wordy, or maybe the subjects could have been broken down in a different way.  It just didn't appeal to me.  I do like the notion promoted within that, "greening" your life can be done in stages, so as not to become overwhelming and ending up changing nothing.
