The Little Book of the Commons is out!

Hey everyone,

After 14 months of off-and-on writing, The Little Book of The Commons is available for you to read! You can buy the paperback or get the free digital version (why I give my books away).

From the back cover: The Commons are as widely misunderstood and overlooked as they are widespread and critical in sustaining and enriching our lives. They come from nature, but humans can also create them. They are open for all to enjoy but often suffer from abuse and neglect. This book explains how we’ve come to understand the formation, function and failure of the commons and uses examples to show how the commons touch our lives in so many ways.

Paperbacks are $5.00 at or €5,35 at

Free digital versions for PDF, ePub and MOBI (Kindle) are here.
