There's never been a better time to be prepared.

"This book is an indispensable basic manual for the real-life issues that await us in the decades to come. . . [A] treasure trove of practical wisdom."-James Howard Kunstler, author of The Geography of Nowhere

Matthew Stein's comprehensive primer on sustainable living skills-from food and water to shelter and energy to first-aid and crisis-management skills-prepares you to embark on the path toward sustainability. But unlike any other book, Stein not only shows you how to live green in seemingly stable times, but to live in the face of potential disasters, lasting days or years, coming in the form of social upheaval, economic meltdown, or environmental catastrophe.

When Technology Fails covers the gamut.

Inside, you'll learn:

The basics of installing a renewable energy system for your home or businessHow to find and sterilize water in the face of utility failureHow to keep warm if you've been left temporarily homelessPractical information for dealing with water-quality issuesAlternative health and first-aid techniques

Each chapter describes skills for self-reliance in good times and bad.

Chapters Include:

A survey of the risks to the status quoSupplies and preparation for short- and long-term emergenciesEmergency measures for survivalPrepping water, food, shelter, and clothingFirst aid, low-tech medicine, and healingSecuring energy, heat, and powerMetalworkingUtensils and storageLow-tech chemistry engineering, machines, and materials

Fully revised and expanded, When Technology Fails ends on a positive, proactive note with a chapter on "Making the Shift to Sustainability," which offers practical suggestions for changing our world on personal, community and global levels.
