I’m sure the book will be a great read and a great success. I’m looking forward to reading it and (if you don’t mind) passing it to other like minded individuals in Canterbury. All the best.

Congratulations Rob. Can’t wait to get my copy down under. It’s been such a pleasure to be inspired by you, Ben and everyone else involved in Transition Initiatives over there. Even noticed a Transition Kinsale picture on a ppt slide sneaking into David Holmgren’s recent presentations. Hope you sell a zillion of them mate.

Just received my copy here in Australia – looks great, packed full of info. Can’t wait to grab a cuppa and have a good look through.

Thanks Rob and congratulations.

Just got a copy from the publishers which I’ll be reviewing for Growing Green magazine – looks fantastic, at last a permaculture ‘peoplecare’ and ‘fairshares’ manual to complement patrick Whitefiled’s ‘Earthcare manual!!@ at least thats my first impression… Especially loved the HELLO! spoof about Posh and Beck’s and ‘Celebrity Love Allotment’. Pimp My Patio indeed!!

Absolutely brilliant Rob, I had a look at Graham’s copy and I am blown away – it is so useful. Well done.

Hi Rob

We met very briefly at Be the Change in London last year; Ben came by on his rapid Scottish visit later and helped sow more transition seeds, and Eva’s powering away on the Scottish gathering at the Big Tent festival this July.

Great to have this book – brilliant! I’ve just put a review on a wee blog I’ve been developing for a few months on resilience …

hope to connect again at some point…

Well done Rob its a fantastic achievement. Ive just put a review of it on scarcely does justice to it. I really like Graham Burnett’s comment that it is a “People care/Fair Shares” Manual.
