HASH(0xa0e2c2d0) out of 5 stars Miserable Textbook Jan. 20 2012

Thankfully this textbook is short. Each chapter is written by a different person, so there is little cohesion to the entire book. The topic of energy is not well explored, but just skimmed in this text. It was a miserable class, miserable instructor and miserable text. The local school bookstore offered me $3 when I went to sell it back. I donated it to the library instead.

I beliew I already wrote a review on this book, but in my haste I failed to mention that even though some of the references are becoming dated, it is a great learning tool for this subject matter and a good reference point to start from as a student in sustainable energy and data about the subject.
I recommend it.

Bought this book for college physics class on Energy as a required text. It was my first physics class ever and I pray its the last I will EVER have to take. This book was not much help either as the wording of EVERY chapter was not clear and explanable. I wish I didn waste my money!

This book introduces a lot of advanced concepts about the energy market. It is not light reading for the casual reader. I do wish it were now updated given events over the last decade.
