I have purchased this Solar Living Sourcebook for the past four editions. It is comprehensively excellent.It has much more than just solar..it includes chapters on many other sustainability issues. Comprehensive.
An excellent, up-to-date reference book for all things renewable: hybrid cars, solar panels, hot water, gardening, etc. Very useful to my wife and I in deciding on solar panels and a new hot water system (we went with a heat pump). Lots of information gathered in one spot, going beyond product marketing with the benefit of years of experience. Readers outside the USA will need to do a little more homework as some products and advice (e.g. rebates) won't apply elsewhere around the world.
There is so much information in this book-- it's chock full of important, thorough information to turn your home into a greener, more eco-friendly habitat.
Helpful and informative.
