Laura or any other book owner.

Does the book address houses that are built on slab foundations? For we Texans that's about 99% or better of our current housing that's been built. I know of another permie that has plans to convert his urban permaculture area to grey water but I wont' have a chance to discuss until Saturday after next during our PDC. Looking forward to your answer!

Yes, the book does address slab-on grade construction. Your options are more limited than people with crawlspace, but you do have options!
