Since I was assigned to read this book in class, I didn't know what to expect from it. My general impression is that this book couldn't decide whether it wanted to be a textbook or a coffee table book. The information is sound, but for the most part it is dryly accounted (à la textbook style). The photographs are lovely, but inserted in such a way that they are distracting to the reader - actually, there are way too many distractions: inset quotes, tables, charts, and images that force you to break away from the copy mid-sentence. Aesthetics aside, if you are interested in how different sources of energy function and how our world can or would be affected by them, this could be an interesting read, but I do not recommend it for the casually interested reader (like myself).
