Leeds, UK (PRWEB) March 16, 2006
Within days of its release, a little electronic book "The Natural Living Guide," has struck a chord with like-minded readers around the world.
Far exceeding the expectations of its authors, Andy Metcalfe and Carl Munson, who wrote it for members of specialist search engine Holistic Local*, the guide has been the subject of requests from numerous websites as well as people in Australia and America who want to get involved with the idea.
"We wrote the guide simply because we want to make the world a better place by sharing some simple ideas with a few friends and business acquaintances," says a surprised, but delighted Andy. "Within hours of giving away the first few copies, we got an email from Australia and have started a US version to satisfy demand there."
"The Natural Living Guide has ten sections and includes 100 tips on a range of subjects including natural health, healthy eating, going green, creativity and living your dreams," says co-writer Carl. "Our hope was that people would be inspired by our book’s mix of inspirational quotes, information and web links for living a more natural life. We wanted them to read it and pass it on."
It seems the idea has caught on, as every day has brought further requests from individuals, publications and websites who want to give it away – challenging the old cliché that bad news travels round the world while good news is still doing up its shoelaces.
"We’re delighted about the guide’s immediate popularity and are really pleased to be meeting so many other people via the web, interested in natural living, who want to share this information," adds Andy.
The Natural Living Guide is available as a download in Adobe ‘pdf’ format and has a foreword by Janey Lee Grace, BBC Radio 2’s unofficial ‘holistic ambassador’, who says the guide is a “great way for busy people to get informed, get involved and take action.”
