The phrase "tough times" certainly applies to the economic tailspin in which we've all been plunged. But do you passively sit by while your bank account evaporates, your job disappears, and your cupboards empty of food? Or do you take things into your own hands and become proactive about you and your family's economic well-being?
Tough Times Survival Guide is a collection of offbeat, unusual essays on economic survival and self-reliance from a broad spectrum of authors, from such old favorites as Ragnar Benson and Ed Romney to a slew of newer voices who approach self-sufficiency from surprising angles. Volume 1 focuses on employment, getting by on less income and a whole host of money-related issues in such chapters as:
- The Fine Art of Gleaning Food

- Secrets of Haggling
- The Lucky 7 Dumpster Diving Spots
- Bill Collector Psychology
