I’ve never made cheese before and now I seriously can’t wait until I do, this book is amazing!  So much great work here, and Kim’s drawings are really something else too!   You should be really proud.
Ian Treuer on May 3rd, 2013
“Gavin has written a book that is refreshing in straightforwardness and purpose, to give you a good start in making cheese at home. It has the personal touch, where he speaks of his reasons behind wanting to start making cheese in the first place; I found this more interesting than what other authors start their books with. You know that story about the poor nomad who had to put milk in a lamb’s stomach; he is using for a canteen and then goes sloshing about the dessert and voila cheese! It is the personal touch that made me want to keep reading.”

“When you make the same quick cheeses nearly everyday, you feel like something different in the weekend, and I was very pleased by the recent release of Gavin Webber’s cheese eBook “Keep Calm and Make Cheese – The Beginners Guide To Cheese Making at Home”. In fact I tried three new cheeses in three days! The Italian bag cheese, the Camembert and the farmhouse cheddar.
Gavin’s book has very clear instructions and the recipes are nice and simple, without some of the more complicated and time-consuming steps I’ve seen in other books. The cheeses are practical for use in the home, rather than trying to match every step used in a commercial process.
Many of my other cheese books skip over important details, and I’m never sure if I should put the lid on the pot, or if I should be draining the cheese in cheese cloth, or do I air dry in the fridge or at room temperature? Gavin doesn’t leave you wondering, all the steps have just the right detail.For anyone who is new to cheese, this is a very useful resource, even if you own several other cheese books, its great value and has some recipes I’d never heard of before (I had to make the Italian bag cheese just because it sounded weird). Throughout the book there are links to Gavin’s YouTube cheese videos, but I didn’t watch any because our Internet is so slow. If you haven’t seen someone making cheese before, this would be a good way to get some first-hand experience without having to go to a cheese-making course.”

This is a great book for beginning cheesemakers. The format, linking the recipes to online videos which demonstrate techniques, is exceptionally helpful. What’s more, Gavin posts regularly on his blog and is available to answer questions.
This is a tremendous value at $6.99 and would be worth it at twice the price.

The Greening of Gavin 3D TabletThe Greening of Gavin – My First Year of Living Sustainably

As he walked out of the cinema, Gavin knew that his life would change forever. It was the impact of a documentary that kicked him into action, whereby he decided to lower his family’s impact on the planet, in the attempt to live a more sustainable lifestyle. This is the story of his first year of ‘The Greening of Gavin’.

Gavin’s philosophy is a simple one and he describes it as this;

“An Ordinary Australian Man Who Has A Green Epiphany Whilst Watching A Documentary, Gets a Hybrid Car, Plants A Large Organic Vegetable Garden, Goes Totally Solar, Lowers Consumption, Feeds Composts Bins and Worms, Harvests Rainwater, Raises Chickens, Makes Cheese and Soap, and Eats Locally. All In The Effort To Reduce Our Family’s Carbon Footprint So We Can Start Making A Difference For Our Children & Future Generations To Come.”

Emma B on Sep. 24, 2012 :
This book is the best I have ever read on sustainability in and around the home. It is funny, easy to read and dotted with great illustrations by the writers wife. Oh yes and the ‘what i’d do differently’ section of each chapter was really helpful for a novice like me starting out my first veg patch!
Dawn H on June 26, 2012 :
I really enjoyed this book. The author has broken his first year of learning to live “green” into practical sections like “Waste” and “Water Conservation”, describing his actions in that first year in each category. Each chapter finishes with a “What I’d Do Now” section, which were my favourite parts. If you’ve followed the blog, you’ll appreciate the opportunity to see how it all began in an easy to read format. If you’re new to Gavin Webber’s story, you’re lucky – this is a great way to discover how an ordinary bloke living an average life started to make changes that significantly reduced his carbon footprint.
Kathy P on June 26, 2012 :
What a terrific little book! I’ve been a devoted reader of the author’s blog for a couple years now, but it’s nice to have his “greening” process laid out step-by-step, all in one publication. When a blogger is as prolific as Gavin is, it can be hard to piece it all together from blog posts done over several years’ time.
I particularly enjoyed the “what I’d do differently” review of each chapter’s topic. As we all know, hindsight is 20/20 and this feature gives us the benefit of Gavin’s learning curve.
It’s easy to get lost in the green-washing propaganda put out by our corporate overlords, but Gavin’s book clearly lays out concrete actions that almost anyone can take to achieve measurable benefits for themselves, their families and the planet. It’s nice to see that a bit of celebrity has come Gavin’s way as well, as his story has gotten a fair bit of press and has likely inspired others to follow in his footsteps.
Nice job! I look forward to reading Gavin’s future works.

Dr. Bob Rich on May 13th 2013 from http://mudsmith.net     
This delightful little e-book is a good recipe for two kinds of fun: building a dome oven, and cooking in it. As you read, you can hear Gavin chatting to you about it, explaining things in simple, no nonsense terms.
The illustrative photographs make the book easy to use.
The step by step instructions are meticulously thought out and clearly presented. I wish I had instructions this detailed for building my first house!
His choice of materials and techniques were environmentally sound. For example, he used clay dug out from his own soil (during the construction of Cluckingham Palace, the place for the chooks), and when he could, he got free or second hand bricks and things. This is a good example to follow.
I approve of a lifestyle of doing things for yourself, living a varied, full life instead of the one-dimensional existence most people unthinkingly follow. Although building an oven in your backyard may superficially seem like a luxury, it is not. It is part of returning to the meaningful, enjoyable way of doing things humans evolved to do.
