This book seeks to answer the question:

“What would it look like if the best responses to peak oil and climate change came not from committees and Acts of Parliament, but from you and me, and the people around us?”

For the first Transition Handbook, published in 2008, this was pretty much a speculative question, but with this new book we are able to draw from what has, in effect, been a four-year worldwide experiment, and attempt to try to put the Transition idea into practice.

This book is a move away from The Twelve Steps of Transition that underpinned the work of Transition initiatives up to this point toward a more holistic, more appropriate model. It imagines the work involved in transforming the place you live from its current highly vulnerable, unresilient, oil-dependent state to a resilient, more localized, diverse, and nourishing place, as a journey.
