Praise For…


"Zeigler goes where few writers dare, weaving an embrace of despair with the jujitsu of permaculture."
—Albert Bates, author of The Post-Petroleum Survival Guide and Cookbook and The Biochar Solution

"This remarkably honest and insightful book is part deep explanation of the dumbest things we do, part anthropological study of Western anthropologists, and part hands-on guide to achieving environmental sustainability. It should be read by everyone, and everyone should read it together, with a small group of people ready to act on it."
—David Swanson, author of War Is a Lie
