Harvard Professor McElroy provides an overview of energy history, use, and environmental consequences. There are fourteen "lectures", which start at a fairly basic level, comparable to high school science course information without the mathematics, formulae, and calculations. The concluding lectures describe the problems faced today, and an energy view of the future. The book provides an informative description of the issues of the day, without going into excessive technical details.
