User Review  - Matt - Goodreads

This wasn't what I thought it was, but that was my fault for not reading about it before I bought it. Once I came to grips with the fact that it wasn't a howto and it was a collection of stories and things about those who have already gone off the grid, I came to like it. Read full review
