Hydrogen is the quintessential eco-fuel. This invisible, tasteless gas is the most abundant element in the universe. It is the basic building block and fuel of stars and an essential raw material in innumerable biological and chemical processes.

Extremely well studied and well written, the grand history of generations of hydrogen research and hydrogen mass implementation struggle. so many failures, setbacks, fading to oblivion, getting nowhere, etc. but still going on.Not like many other kind of books with the author having a biased and cheerleading mindset and using examples which just supports his /her idea, without mentioning or intentionally eliminating the final dead end of the quoted examples in its final shapes, Mr. Peter Hoffman ...more

Almost every developed country has a "Hydrogen Highway" where hydrogen powered cars can travel and be filled at hydrogen fueling stations. This will get more attention since the 2010 gulf oil disaster. Norway has the largest and most advanced, I think. California has one. Honda has 100-200 Acord-size prototype cars running in Calif.

This is a great introductory read to tomorrow's energy decision. It gives you a pretty good idea of what can be done to move away from a fossil-fuel based society. Very informative, and the ideas that are out there are very creative. Also, if you're an investor like me, it'll help you understand the new technologies and their limitations. It's very good for all the environmentalists out there.
