Shale Gas: The Promise and the Peril by Vikram Rao Ph.D.

My job involves energy markets so I found this book invaluable to get me up to speed on the basics of the shale gas revolution.

The contents are very US specific. There's possibly too much discussion of policy choices the US government should be taking (in the opinion of the author). Apart from that the book is excellent, short and concise.

This has been used day and night for the last 3 months to charge a nexus 7 tablet as well as 2 old model iPhones. They are rarel charged eelsewhere so I'd say it's had heavy use. It's worked perfectly since day 1.

First lead broke within days as I pulled it out of my nexus 7. The whole socket (device end) came apart.

The second one has worked for the last 3 months but has become increasingly loose in the nexus 7. Some nights I didn't wiggle it enough to make sure the charging light was on, and woke up to an uncharged device. More recently it doesn't hold in at all unless I put it in at a very specific angle. I was worried that the nexus itself was damaged, but I dug out the original cable and it works and fits just fine.

Conclusion : avoid.
