A Request...

I wrote my review of Nick Rosen's book Off the Grid: Inside the Movement for More Space, Less Government, and True Independence in Modern America, on Amazon.com. While reading the other reviews, I noticed that there seems to be a misconception about this book, some of the readers/reviewers are expecting a "how to" book, a sort of technical manual of how to go off grid. This book is less "how to" and more about the people, the who and the why. The reviewers who gave it a less than stellar review were expecting a "how to" manual, they didn't seem to get the idea once they read on that the book is about the people who are living the life, so because of the fact that they didn't "get it", didn't understand what this book is and what it isn't, they gave it a negative review, this is unfair (IMHO) to Nick and the people in the book.

Here is the link to my review, http://www.amazon.com/review/R2W0HIGF72JURF/ref=cm_cr_rdp_perm  I am asking you, my great readers, to go there, read my review and if you would, I would appreciate it if you would vote my review up, where it says "Was this review helpful to you?", I'd love it if you would click on "yes".  If you are a registered Amazon.com user, and you have a copy of this book, how about writing your own review?
