This is an excellent book for anyone interested in alternative energy. Tyler lays out several "next gen" energy technologies being pushed by people who might be mad geniuses, or else just a little mad. For each, he gives you an excellent primer on the topic at hand (fusion power, orbiting solar power etc), profiles the person developing the technology and delves into the technology itself. It's a subject that could end up dry and dull, or else too superficial to be of any use in the hands of many authors, but after years as a technology journalist, Tyler clearly knows how to give you the details, tell you the story behind the technology and keep it all interesting.
