    Another one, The Whole Earth Catalogue

    I think I've had both at some point, neither now.

    I have a copy of the little MEN book, have had it for years. Also all of the magazines up to somewhere in the late 80's early 90's. Sometimes I dig a stack of them out and just revisit it all.

    I got the complete MHN on c/d last year. Not as much fun as flipping pages but still loads of Info.

    I have never seen the book. Sounds interesting. We have most of the old back issues of MEN and are still getting it. Thought about offering them for sale but with postage so high doubt if I would get any takers. The older MEN were full of good advice and plans. Actually, I get more good info from this sight anymore.

    Sad to say I gave all of my old books away when I moved across the country. Sorry I did that.
