Essential evidence from an independent source unfettered by political bias about the peak oil resource situation. Reading this book confirms the debt of gratitude that should be afforded Colin Campbell, Kjell Aleklett and the peak oil proponents. The book is adorned with interesting graphics and fascinating insights to Kyells journey attempting to educate people on the resource constraint issues in the conventional oil scene.
I like the quote at the beginning attributed to Lord Luce that ...."It was the job of an independent university not to be afraid to annoy people" and I suspect Uppsala University UGES group have fulfilled that much needed void.
This is one of my must-have books about peak oil and it must reach as a wide an audience as possible. Thrilling and inspiring to read a treatise which clearly shouts out to preach the peak oil message afar, in the face of so much opposition to the idea of resource constraints.

This is an interesting book about the story of peak oil. It starts by describing what is oil, how it can be found, how it can extracted, what if allows us to do, what are the consequences of its use. All of of this is told by the perspective of the ASPO president and his journey when he decided to study oil and its impact on our society. The book is not very technical and is accessible to every one. A must read on the issue of peak oil.
