Publisher's Summary

Freedom. Flexibility. Happiness. Is it possible to have it all, or is it just a gimmick? Keep reading...

What does your dream lifestyle entail? 

Maybe, it consists of living in the much-popularized tiny house, where every nook and cranny is utilized for maximum storage and coziness. You have everything you need in that one space, no clutter in sight. 

Or, maybe, you hear the ocean calling your name, cultivating your dream of owning a houseboat where the channels become your home. A traveler at heart, you are. 

Maybe, you don’t even have a preference for what type of home you live in, as long as you’re surrounded by the beauty of nature and have access to fresh sources of food and water - a world where the sun is your alarm clock and the singing birds cheer you on.

Whatever the vision you have in mind may be, it doesn’t have to be a fiction of your imagination any longer.

Despite what others may say about the off-grid style of living, it’s not strange and it’s not a “phase” you will eventually get over. Everyone has different passions and definitions of what the perfect life would be, so not all people will understand. Regardless of what family or friends say, don’t let them deter you. If it’s something you truly desire, then there’s no other option than to go for it!

In Living Off The Grid, you will discover:

  • How different off-grid lifestyles can be, as well as which type best suits you and your needs 
  • What is the ultimate approach to take when it comes to getting rid of unnecessary belongings 
  • How to find the golden egg to finance your new lifestyle 
  • What are 16 pantry staples to not only dramatically reduce your food expenses, but also decrease the time you spend on cooking meals 
  • What are a few no-brainer habits to take on for lowering your bills and preparing yourself for life off the grid 
  • How to decide which off-grid home speaks to you the most, including any disadvantages you should be aware of, beforehand 
  • What are the most efficient way to power your home according to your property’s features
  • And much more...

Even if you have absolutely no clue as to what taking your life off-grid would involve, with the right resources and guidance, it’s possible for anyone who has an unquenchable thirst for it. Making such a huge life change can be very daunting, but in the end, you will thank yourself when you see just how happy it makes you.

If the Watkinsons family from the UK can quit their jobs, uproot their home, and live off of renewable energy, all while taking care of their 5-year-old daughter and an 18 month-old son, then so can you.

Instead of living a life filled with perpetual daydreaming and “should haves”, quit pitying yourself and take action now to see your dreams become a reality.

So, what are you waiting for? Pure happiness and satisfaction are waiting for you on the other side of your life-changing decision.

If you want to leave behind your boring daily routine and discover how to live the off-grid lifestyle you’ve been fantasizing about for years, then scroll up and click the “buy now” button right now!

Not what I had in mind

I was hoping this book would go into detail about certain off the grid practices, but it doesn’t. For example, the book says this “in ground homes are a popular house for off the grid people, but make sure you do your research on this before building”. That was the narrative of the book. For food, it says “there are lots of food you can grow and that you will probably want to grow the foods you are interested in”. In my mind, this book wasted my time. If you have absolutely no idea on what off grid housing is then maybe read this. But if your looking for real insights this ain’t it.

Generic

This author gives a basic list of what you will need for off grid living. He barely expanded on any of it in any detail and I did not feel that it was any different from any list that you could get off of the Internet.

Truly basic

The author really explains the basics of living off grid that most people already understand.

This book would be fantastic for city living folk that never really thought about any of this.

Good start

This book was a nice overview of what it takes to go off-grid. The chapters each cover one topic in an orderly and logical way. The reader was pleasant and understated.

If you are looking for an emotional tale of great transformation, this is not your book. If you are looking for a way to organize and solidify your thoughts and plans, this book is a good place to begin.

Lacks Detail.

Covers all the major components in breadth and lacks all depth. Covers a few things to consider but mostly just rolls through major topics and a few options with 8n each category. I will need to get other books to get better insight

Very basic info, most of it common sense

Narration is the worst I've ever heard. We loud have been less robot like if they had used text to speech! Narrators intonation and grammar is terrible also some words are miss pronounced.

The book content is OK if you have literally no idea about anything off grid or have no common sense but I'd be very surprised if anyone actually learned anything useful as there is very little in the way of in depth information. Also a lot of repetition too.

A very good starting point

A very good starting point for those considering an off the grid life style. Gary tells it like it is, and brings up important considerations, why they are important, and what order you should do whichever plan you decide on. Nice book!!

Excellent Advice.

I appreciated his perspective on tiny houses and yurts being less than perfect for off grid living as well as his introduction to the various types of RVs and trailers. Overall I would definitely recommend this book to anyone considering a full off-grid or partial off-grid lifestyle.
