iPermie is a newly published ebook, complete with 14 sections, 248 chapters, and 399,000 words.

iPermie will empower you with the strategies, tools, and techniques you need to navigate the cardinal threats of peak oil, climate instability, economic irrationality, and political criminality.

iPermie is an almanac of useful information and permaculture self study guide.

iPermie provides best practices, reskilling suggestions and information, and experience with permaculture design.

iPermie is a good-life design guide for Millennials, Boomers, and Generation X that can help each generation meet its unique challenges.

Because of the nature of city living, iPermie discusses invisible structure issues in great depth. Indeed, the invisible structure discussion is a "book within the book." People in cities will not be able to grow all of their own food, so they must participate in urban food security structures like cooperatives, CSAs, community gardens, and other forms of community food security. They won't be able to grow their own energy, so new forms of energy security for cities need to be developed.

Yes, the book includes recipes, so there is a "Cookbook within the book" too.

See the annotated table of contents (with section and chapter summaries) at http://www.ipermie.net/toc.htm .

Bump! I just discovered this book through Vinay Gupta, who wrote the forward.

Immediately purchased for Kindle (but you can buy it for just about any format). Immediately overwhelmed (in a positive way). This is a heck of a book, one I've thought about writing myself, and one that a WHOLE LOT of the forum members here need. Anyone who has ever thought "How do I get started with Permaculture", anyone who feels stuck in their permaculture practice, anyone who is seeking and just wants to know more. From here on out, anyone who posts "How do I get started" gets a link to this book.

Great mix of practice and theory. Great balance of low-level and high-level. Not a bunch of stuff (as far as I've read) on large-scale land interventions, everything is much more focused on urban/suburban dwellers.

And it's TWO BUCKS. If you can't afford two bucks at least download the INSANELY GENEROUS preview chapters and get started with it, if you follow his advice you'll end up with two extra dollars pretty quick.

Bob, thanks for putting such an enormous amount of effort into this masterpiece. I can't wait to see where it goes and where it takes you. I expect you to be "making the big bucks with permaculture" Paul Wheaton-style, that's how good your book is.
It's hard to fight evil. The little things, like a nice sandwich, really helps. Right tiny ad?
It's like binging on 7 seasons of your favorite netflix permaculture show
