really liked it

pretty good read. the author sometimes diverts his attention from the history of energy/energy storage in the 19th & 20th centuries (the book's strong suit) into op-ed work. very interesting tales about how the electrical vehicle industry shot itself in the foot early on & how a small group of company men worked to take any electrical transportation out of commission.
