What Some People Are Saying About The Best Sell Book Going Off The Grid:

“I try to be impartial and not recommend specific products but I would recommend this book for anybody wanting to know realistically the trials and tribulations of figuring out how to buy land, find good contractors, and build an off-grid conventional, with all standard utilities, house in the country.”

Aur Beck Mother Earth News Book Review

“Coming from a Military Intelligence background, I found the book to not only be a great read, but very credible with sound logic and tactics to reach a goal of living off the “Grid.” Don’t get me wrong, anyone with any background can follow the instructional “how to” chapters with ease and don’t need a special military background. The author has a warm writing style that makes for a fast, fun and formative read. Truly an outstanding book!”


“GOING OFF THE GRID is a well-organized book outlining concrete steps a person needs to take in order to simplify life. The author, Gary Collins, discusses different types of off-grid living and narrows his version down to a modern, comfortable off-grid lifestyle. Unlike back-to-earth manuals, he does not gloss over the life change such a shift entails. Instead, he discusses the pro’s and con’s of off-grid living, the philosophy behind a simplified lifestyle, and advice about what to expect along the way, including combating the initial discomfort and challenge of change.”


“This book is easily worth the price when you discover how much time and money it will save you. Mr. Collins provides answers to questions that people probably don’t even know they need to ask and his real world experience brings a healthy dose of reality to the idea of building off grid. The author “walks the walk” in this book and it’s clear that he has spent time in the trenches making his off grid plans a reality. Some important things I learned from reading this book include:

Different types of septic systems are available based on your land use and topography.
The realities of satellite internet versus mobile hot-spots and other alternative connections.
The complications of water rights and micro hydro power.
Efficient uses of power for pumping and storing water.
The pitfalls of dealing with contractors in an off grid construction scenario (worth the cost of the book on its own).

In conclusion, this book is a very valuable resource for anyone planning to build and live off grid.”


“I’ve read Gary Collins’ other books. Collins uses the same writing approach in Going Off the Grid – taking complicated subject matters and simplifying them for us non-experts and managing to keep the content interesting and not boring. Chapter 6 of this book, Dealing with General Contractors, is worth the value of the book by itself. Having recently been through a similar experience with bad contractors, this chapter really helps put things in perspective and shows where I went wrong. If you are interested in purchasing property and living off-grid, I highly recommend this book.”


“I read Going off the Grid: The how-to book of simple living to learn more about simplifying your life, not necessarily how to see how to build an off the grid home. Gary does a great job of not only telling you the trials and tribulations of building a self sustaining home, but gives you a blueprint how to make your life easier by paring down your life. This was an entertaining read and I would recommend it to anyone wishing to choose this lifestyle.”


“Going Off the Grid: The How-to Book of Simple Living and Happiness by Gary Collins, MS is an intelligent self-help book for those who are thinking about, in the process of, or even just curious about living comfortably and autonomously. As Collins begins he makes it clear that there are many different ways to define what living “off the grid” means, and that his experience, while comprehensive in its application, isn’t a sole and singular perception. What Collins delivers is a virtual encyclopedia of all things off the grid, covering every conceivable prerequisite to development, cost, planning, consideration, and resources for turning the dream of living autonomously into a reality.”

“Going into this book I was unsure of what to expect. This is partly due to my narrow understanding of what living off the grid meant (which, frankly, had been thus far limited to what I’d seen in “prepper” shows), and partly due to my only real foray into the wilderness being an Alaskan cruise taken last summer. Not exactly roughing it, I know. Going Off the Grid by Gary Collins changed all of that. His straightforward and natural narrative allowed me to see something that was not only attainable, but that also sounded really, really nice. If you have any interest in living autonomously at all, even if it isn’t a full time existence, I believe this all-inclusive guidebook would be a gem of a manual to help in every step of the way. There is nothing that Collins doesn’t cover and his experience can save you from the pitfalls and expense that are often the true cost of living simply.”

“The Simple Life Guide To RV Living: The Road to Freedom and the Mobile Lifestyle Revolution by Gary Collins is the follow-up to the author’s first DIY self-help guide Going off the Grid. Collins doesn’t mince words in this straightforward manual for those looking to downsize and live freely, even if that freedom doesn’t mean a 24/7 life on the road. With tips on how to transition to living with less space and less stuff, which ultimately means little to no debt (yes, really), and real life lessons that contribute toward a comprehensive assessment of the realities of living on the road (both good and bad), Collins provides readers with a practical approach to a nomadic lifestyle.”

“The simple life isn’t so simple, as it turns out…not at first, at least. It’s refreshing to be told Collins’ story firsthand and understanding the undercurrent that eventually resulted in a complete change of life. He doesn’t quibble in laying mistakes he’s made out on the table (or in other places that may or may not involve human fecal matter and a sewage hose), and in doing so he gives the rest of us hope. It will take a moment or two to grow accustomed to his writing style, but it quickly becomes friendly and engaging. It reads like a series of blog posts: informative, oftentimes funny, and with a ring of familiarity toward the reader and the subject matter. The Simple Life Guide To RV Living is an excellent resource for people who are tired of the everyday grind of urban living, but frankly, I’d recommend it even to people who are thinking of buying an RV for the weekends.”

What Some People Are Saying About The Simple Life Guide To Optimal Health:

“What this book lacks in hype and nonsense it makes up for in information that is simple, easy to understand, actionable, and livable. So if you’re looking for the latest “get ripped” quick scheme or other hucksterism, this book may not be for you. I spent most of my youth as an athlete and gym rat. Now in my 40s, I have the injuries to prove it. There were so many dumb fads. I wish this book had been around back then. I liked the book enough to go into the danger zone and suggest it to my wife.”


“This well-written book covers it all—what to eat, how to move, and which supplements are beneficial—from the unique perspective of a guy who solved his own health problems and who used to be a special agent for the FDA. The chapter on counterfeit supplements was a real eye-opener for me, and worth the price of admission itself. I’m much more careful with how I purchase them now.

I have autoimmune thyroid issues and have read many other books that helped unravel things for me, like the excellent ones from Dr. Datis Kharrazian, but this book explains things in a way that’s simpler to read and understand, and very easy to implement. I wish I had had it ten years ago—it would have saved me thousands of dollars in doctor bills and unnecessary supplements, not to mention years of stress and confusion.

If you’re overweight, struggling with autoimmunity, or just not feeling well and getting the runaround from doctors, this book could be the key to getting your health back.”


“I’ve read a lot of books on fitness and dieting over the years, but this is one of the best books that I’ve read on these topics by far. It forgoes all the trendy diets and latest exercises with unrealistic promises of weight loss and strength gains. Instead, the book provides a simple and personalized plan for diet and exercise that is readily actionable, results driven (already lost 1.5 inches off waistline in the last month), and most importantly sustainable!”
