5.0 out of 5 stars The power of physics, 24 Sept. 2009
This review is from: Sustainable Energy - Without the Hot Air (Paperback)
The world needs physicists and engineers like never before to ensure that Mankind can live peacefully and sustainably in the future. This book is the best material to inspire intelligent youngsters who may be choosing to do a science subject at university that science can really be used to solve Mankind's problems. By working through the topics especially in the additional chapters they will begin to see that what they have learned at school is the building block of what they will learn at University and how these tools can have a real application to the problems of the world.

For all intelligent adults who have had a science training, this book is the one to reassure you that science (even simple science - not rocket science) allows a refreshing view on energy that puts all the waffle you hear on the media into stark contrast.

How pleased we should be that Professor David MacKay has been appointed Chief Scientific Advisor to the UK Government's Department of Energy and Climate Change. If he can persuade the policymakers with the same humour and candour we find in Sustainable Energy - without the hot air then the UK should be able to play an authoritative role in international deliberations on energy and climate change. Roll on Copenhagen.
