We were fortunate enough to meet Tertzakian in person and listen to him in a debate, speak with him afterwards. Very sincere and approachable man who knows his stuff!

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Aaron Donnelly on March 8 2006
Format: Hardcover
This was a very well written book on the history of energy and our absolute dependence on it, especially oil. He very simply goes through the history of energy in our lives, from whale oil to nuclear power and how it has driven our economies and fostered an unbelieveable surge of innovation and advancement in technology and also how this has affected our everyday lives. As someone with not much knowledge of the energy industry or its history, I was very pleased with this book, the ease of readablity and understanding. The author shows us where we've come from and where we're likely to go within the next 5 to 10 years in regards to our energy usage. Also some good information for investors looking for possible new investments in an already growing sector of the economy and one that looks like will not stop its staggering growth. A must read for anyone interested in economics/history/investing.

This is an excellent body of work that is written in a professional manner that is not meant to doomsay but meant to inform. I enjoyed the book very much.

By readandtravelasia on June 19 2006
Format: Hardcover
The growth of so many large poor nations means greater needs on oil and raw materials of all sorts. This book is gives warnings on the future troubles of shortage of oil. Worth read. But its scope is rather limited and its analysis. A far better read on a changing global economic map is this book: China's global reach: markets, multinationals, and globalization by a Chinese journalist George Zhibin Gu.
