Our New Titles: The Resilience Handbook

Elizabeth Walker author of The Resilience HandbookIf you are turned on by simple green living, one of our forthcoming titles, The Resilience Handbook, by Elizabeth Walker is going to set your head in a slow, green spin.

Imagine melding  the best concepts from the Transition Handbook and Polly Ghazi’s Downshifting with John Seymour’s guides to self-sufficiency, then adding a splash of necessary survival and you’ll find yourself in the right ball park for this incredibly practical and well penned handbook, set for publication in April 2015.

This inspirational, problem solving and sobering manuscript is currently tucked away with our eco-editor at the moment and we cannot give too much away at this stage, except to say we are incredibly proud to be publishing this crucial and timely solution to many of our modern day problems.
