The Encyclopedia of Country Living
About two years ago, I started planning my self-sufficient life. About one year ago, I dove into that life head first. During the planning stages, this book was one of the first I came across. I read a very large portion of it. I'd start out being fascinated by soap-making, then I was curious about how to butcher a pig, then, perhaps after having eaten some rice, I thought, "I wouldn't want ...

The Hitchhiker's Guide to Lean: Lessons from the Road
Society of Manufacturing Engineers, 2006
Solid and Comprehensive
As a lean leader in my organization and a Six Sigma Black Belt, here are my impressions: Oh No, Not Another Book About Lean! Admittedly this was my first thought. But I've long admired Mr. Flinchbaugh's blog and his seemingly honest, straightforward, and technically sound approach to lean; so I figured I'd give it a try. The first section is a basic lean overview, but it does offer an ...

Gaia Girls: Enter The Earth
Excellent book -- a magical read. Welles weaves a vivid tale and really captures a specific mood. My only caveat would be that there's one section that's a graphic description of what goes on in commercial pig and other animal farming -- very vivid, but not for the weak of stomach.
Fans, Friends And Followers: Building An Audience And A Creative Career In The Digital Age
Nerds don't have friends
I thought this book would bring me Fans, Friends and even a few roadies, I mean, uh... followers. But I was wrong. It's still true that you have to be really talented, or really beautiful or star on TMZ, to get some of these people to pay attention, but I learned that the hard way... I don't have any of these things going for me. I spent money on a book that looked like a nerd like me would buy. ...

The Seasons On Henry's Farm

I savored my way through The Seasons on Henry's Farm smelling, tasting and feeling the wonderful intimacies Brockman shares about life on the farm and the challenges and bounties of the land. Thankfully, we have farmers who connect to the land this way. It helps me remember to support and cherish what good, healthy food can do for palates, people, and the environment.

Return on Sustainability
Dog Ear Publishing, LLC
Buy this book for yourself and others who need to know
My copy is already dog-eared, heavily underlined and highlighted because there are so many ACTION ITEMS for business people. I have bought a few copies for business leaders, some of whom already "get it" and others who don't and this book works for either because it is jammed with real-world case studies and data. The idea of demonstrating the business case for action on Climate through data ...

These fields have evolved over this period of time. During the past 5 years there have been many good books on new construction, but few on Remodeling. Since remodeling would recycle a whole building, it is ...
