The description in the publishers summary makes this book out to sound MUCH better than it really is. If like me you are after a book regarding how a man can carve a life out of building his own home and living of the land by means of hunting and fishing and all that good stuff we think we want to do but really we just live vicariously through other people then this is not the book for you. perhaps instead look in to Norman Dietz "One man's wilderness" which was actually just that.
But if you are interested in a book regarding how one, no "a village" should live self sustainable in a possible future without oil (even during the current glut) and wish to hear how much Ben Law has an appreciation for the nature surrounding him then this is the book for you! better yet record your self saying coppices trees and play that back for 4 hrs and 10 min.
Amazing, I really enjoyed this book 10/10 all around. Highly suggest you pick this up and give it a listen.
I was expecting a more typical biography with lots of coverage of Ben's early life but this is more of a description of what living in a wood is like and Ben's views on the World in general.
Absolutely fascinating stuff if you have any interest at all in sustainable living and the future of mankind.

Considering Ben Law's knowledge and passion for the subject, he reads his book without conviction to the point of boredom. Buy the real book and be inspired.
