Self-Sufficient-ish – a wonderful phrase for what the authors refer to as their urban guide to almost self-sufficiency. Dave and Andy Hamilton, of the UK, are founders of an interactive Web site (www.selfsufficientish.com), and a book just out this year: The Self Sufficient-ish Bible – An Eco-living Guide for the 21st Century.

The philosophy that drives both the book and Web site is that many people would love to give up their job, move to the country and grow all of their own food, but the reality is that few of us will ever be able to accomplish all of that. So, in the meantime, Dave and Andy have gathered a whole passel of information on growing your own food, brewing your own alcohol, collecting wild food and a host of other practical and useful tips for becoming self-sufficient-ish in an urban setting.

The tone is definitely British, but the tips are universal.
