This review is from: The Quest: Energy, Security and the Remaking of the Modern World (Hardcover)
Whether you agree with Yergin or not on "Peak Oil", this book is essential reading. The prose is nicely jargon free and an easy read especially for those with a bit of background knowledge of the energy industry. As long as you're aware of Yergin's orientation - which is basically pro oil company and anti "peak oil" - then there is a feast of information here. He even has good things to say about wind power, solar and energy efficiency - with nice summaries of how the renewables industry has developed over the last few decades (how does this benefit the oil companies??). In summary, an excellent update to "the Prize". I've given it 4 stars because it would have to be completely free of bias to warrant 5 stars.

Anyone with good things to say about wind power is either ignorant or stupid
