"I dream of a better world ... DIY culture is about grabbing a little piece of that dream."—Matte Resist, from the introduction

This essential new do-it-yourself handbook explores a wide range of simple and advanced DIY projects, with the underpinning notion that anyone is capable and qualified with a little encouragement.

Includes step-by-step instructions for projects such as building your own musical instruments, making your own solar panel out of soda cans, building a bicycle sidecar (or doing simple bike upgrades), making greywater improvements to your home, seed saving and gardening... and countless other ways to lead a simpler, more sustainable life and decrease your reliance on corporations and the government."
