Default E-book -- how-to manuals

I don't know if these have been posted here before, but I'm going to throw them out there anyway.

The first is kind of hard to describe, it is a manual for people living in third-world countries on how to make their own things, anything from a methane gas collector to a wood-burning stove, a solar water heater, etc. Mostly uses parts that are recycled or cheaply available.

Published by UNESCO.

In a similar vein, The Village Technology Handbook:

A very cool little booklet. 145 pages of neat ideas!

Unfortunately, that site won't allow downloads unless you're a paid member.

"To download this document you must become a Premium Reader"

Wonder if they are available in print form in the US? Unavailable on Amazon:
