There's lots of good stuff in the book, especially when the energy discussion intersects the author's civil engineering background. I especially liked the coverage of cogeneration, the need for a high-speed rail system, and the distribution possibilities for electric car batteries. But I felt like the attempt to break down what happens at $6 a gallon gas, $8 a gallon gas, etc... were too forced. I would preferred a focus on sectors of the economy (and how rising gas prices would affect them) rather than the data-light predictions.
