Grade 7 Up --A clear, succinct summary of the latest information concerning energy resources. The history of human needs and solutions, the types of energy available, and expectations for the future are explained in nontechnical language. Also, synthetic fuels are discussed fully. The costs of energy in economic, political, social, and environmental terms are weighed carefully, reminiscent of Smith's outstanding Energy Isn't Easy (Coward, 1984). Illustrated with competent black-and-white photographs, this volume offers little new material, containing much the same information as Gardiner's Energy Demands (Gloucester, 1990), and that title's larger size and profuse full-color illustrations are more attractive. Lambert's Future Sources of Energy (Bookwright, 1986) and Strachan's Future Sources (Gloucester, 1985) are for younger readers and place less emphasis on the problems. --Meryl Silverstein, American Museum of Natural History, New York City
