Book Review: The Art and Science of Dumpster Diving

Buy at Amazon

In step-by-step, illustrated detail, John Hoffman shows you the The Art and Science of Dumpster Diving.

If you want to learn how to use dumpster diving for food, clothing, appliances, furniture, books and other treasures then you should read this book

Discover how to dress for dumpster diving success, work your neighborhood dumpsters, dive a restaurant, use a “bag blade” and “dive stick”, handle run-ins with the authorities, convert your trash to cash, and much more!

While you are learning all these professional secrets, you will be entertained by outrageous anecdotes from a life-long master diver.

Frankly, while there is some interesting and possibly useful ideas presented in this book, I am skeptical of its use for preppers.

To me, most of the content of The Art and Science of Dumpster Diving is common sense or easily learned tradecraft.

I guess some people need to be told that id you want cheap bread you can look in the dumpster of a bakery or day old bread store – and those people may need to be told to only get the bread that is sealed in bags.

There are practical statements on close to wear, what kind of car to drive, and how to deal with police and dumpster owners, but as I said before, most seems to be common sense.
