Top critical review
still not done right, in 5 editions
Reviewed in the United States on December 5, 2017
I really wanted to like this book. It contains a large amount of useful information, and some really good graphs. But it's all bound up with a lot of *extremely* boring discussion about climate conventions and other things that probably will not matter that much in the end. There are also dozens of predictions and projections. I wouldn't give a thin dime for the lot of them. Changes in the energy system are going to be happening much faster than most of these pundits ever thought possible. Indeed, it's already started.
The book is also slickly produced, but poorly edited. "terrajoules"? GMAB. Another hint to the author and editors: Commas are not a scarce resource! And for the sections with sans serif fonts, did you really have to use *Lucida*? Nauseating.
