"Think local self-reliance is far-fetched in a flat world? Lyle Estill's Small is Possible shows how it is being done for food, housing, energy, finance, health care, and just about everything else communities care about. A seasoned entrepreneur and social innovator, Estill tells fun-to-read stories that are engaging, insightful and practical. This book is an indispensable resource for community organizers and economic developers alike."
Michael Shuman, author and economist
