One thing that could be emphasized more is that college isn't a workable path for everyone currently, and the whole SKIP-ing the rat race thing to get right to the skills that are needed.
Another piont that could be included is that even if you don't want to inherit property, even if you're not (yet) a fan of permaculture even, these are probably the skills you'll need to accumulate to homestead effectively. It's a question a lot of people must have. I know how to do these three things, but what skills am I missing??? what will happen when I'm there on my homestead and X happens? What's that you say, I need to sharpen my tools??? PEP can go a long way to cataloguing the comprehensive set of skills for people.
I think a statistic would be helpful too--X number of farmers in the US are without someone to leave the farm to who will continue to farm. Just because you know there are 12 people out in Montana in this situation doesn't fully incentivize people elsewhere--but I am sure there are a lot of farmers like that all around.
If I have more I'll post again.
Lastly, this project is so huge that it isn't going to be done perfectly the first time. Maybe it's worth acknowledging that in the kickstarter. Maybe putting out there the idea of other books in the future, Permaculture Experience according to Gert/Penelope/Thanos/Tom Brady.

Just curious if anyone's bought this book or built a septic system using it? Wanted to see if anyone thought it was a scam before I bought it. On sale for $26 right now.
