This 592 page manual shows how Australians can downshift and retrofit their homes, gardens, communities and, above all, themselves to be more self-organised, sustainable and resilient into an uncertain future. It promises a challenging but exciting mix of satisfying work, a more meaningful way of living and hope for the next generation. RetroSuburbia is divided into three main sections: the Built, the Biological and the Behavioural along with the introductory section 'Setting the scene'.
