Do you really think I’m going to recommend a 700 page book about energy?
Because I am.
Daniel Yergin is the Pulitzer Prize winning author of The Prize and his latest creation The Quest is a beauty of a follow up. Energy is the catalyst for just about everything, and what it is, where it comes from and who controls it are riddles that change on a near daily basis. This book reads like a novel as it unveils the global realities of the energy enigma. Things are perhaps not as bad as I would have thought, but a failure of any one system and we might be looking at our bicycles in a new way. The book also touches on the future and the realities of things like renewables and biofuel. Corn anyone? This book is a must read for anyone who likes to know how the big machine works.
