Unlike some other reviewers I did not have any problems with listening to the reader. I found the content relative, detailed, and helpful in planning for my own move to homesteading. The ideas are useful, varied, and easily adaptable to skill sets and products not listed specifically in the book, although the ideas given are an excellent springboard for brainstorming. I plan on purchasing a paper copy to keep as a reference.
I really enjoyed listening to this book it shoots straight and tells you what mistakes there are to be made in first persuing homesteading. The author and his included interviews with other homesteaders don't negate your drive to have a life less encumbered but instead show you ways to achieve that life with eyes opened wide to the trials you will face. Many of the desires expressed spoke directly to my heart and unlike the unhelpful criticism of friends and family let me know that I am not alone in the desire to live a life less hectic and more natural. I have much praise for this publication. If you want to adopt a life at your own pace, seek a peaceful times passed existence or just leave the modern world's drive for the dollar behind and gain a bit of freedom this book is for you! I purchased the audio book yesterday and I have listened to it thrice. Thank you, Tim Young!

A little slow in parts. a good primer for further research. If you are already on the land then maybe this is not for you. Otherwise the books gives a nice detailed and honest outlay of what can be done with a small homestead and the diversity and fun that can come from it.
I chose this book on tape and enjoyed it very much. Tim gave me lots to think about and will be very helpful for anyone thinking about or in this life style. I will highly recommend this book.
The stories flowed well. I felt like I needed and wanted more details. Maybe some more about business planning? Not sure what I expected. This book is good encouragement, I guess but certainly not a "how-to".
This book went over all the things I have been unsure of during the process of starting a homestead. With real and true stories it's been so inspiring! Going to download more from this author.
Some good ideas for financial independence. Concentrated a lot on cheesemaking as that is The authors expertise. There are plenty of other ways to make money not listed in this book.
