BBC journalist and environmentalist Rory Spowers wanted to finally live his dream and abandon life in London for a more ecologically sustainable lifestyle. Moving with his wife and two toddler sons to a 60–acre abandoned tea estate in Sri Lanka, Rory sets out to create a model organic farm there and earn his livelihood from the land. The fascinating story begins with the tsunami and Rory's sudden involvement with the relief efforts, and charts the course of his adventures over 12 months culminating in the launch of his new business (making a living by selling the produce he grows). It chronicles the highs and lows of this radical change, and reveals what it takes to live a sustainable life. It will also include tips for those of you who wish to live a more environmentally friendly life. Spowers' narrative brims with adventure, harrowing moments, and small triumphs as he comes to know the people and the land and works toward creating his dream of a sustainable, model forest garden.

The story of a man who came to India to work and then found very different, unusual things there. The book is written in the form of short exerpts in the social media age known as the 21st century. We hear the Om but don't recognise it; somewhere beside a pooing cow, a middle-class Indian is busy checking in with Foursquare while self-discovery tourists are searching for salvation. People are tweeting everywhere. This is a story of social media self-discovery - probably the first in the entire known universe. It took shape during travel, while all sorts of things were constantly happening around the author; while he was actually trying to land an important deal in India - or maybe not? India has never been so digital, but at the same time nor so colourful or so real. This book tells us why the aspiring country can still confuse us, even in the age of Facebook. It's a must-have for anyone who's had enough of traditional self-discovery literature.
