I had mixed eelings on this book The uture of energy is obviously a topic that I m really interested in And as the authors both write or the Economist I igured it would be well written knowledgeable and informative It was informative and airly knowledgeable but surprisingly poorly written I think the main problem stemmed rom the act that it was written by two authors The reason I say this is that the authors had an irritating tendency to repeat themselves or likely each other Also or the irst 200 pages of the book there is little that could be labelled a coherent argument It is like a haphazard lurch through the automobile and oil industries with random anecdotes and interviews with the industries big names sprinkled in Of course while this is a bit Owls: Birds of the Night frustrating the authors are obviously well tuned in to the oil and automobile scenes which makes these chapters informative despite the lack of arguments The one otherrustrating aspect of the book was the writing style The Economist magazine prides itself on its objectivity above all articles always attempt to look at both sides of the argument This is an excellent uality in a magazine and a good uality in a book but Bon Bon Voyage (A Carolyn Blue Culinary Mystery, for theirst two thirds of the book I Bon Bon Voyage felt that the authors went a little bit tooar in trying to present a balanced picture to the *detriment of presenting any actual opinion or making a compelling argument Despite all of these complaints I *of presenting any actual opinion or making a compelling argument Despite all of these complaints I glad to have read this book The inal 100 pages are unified than the previous 200 and once the authors got to their point I thought it was a good one I learned a lot in anecdotes than in hard acts but even so I eel like I have a better understanding of these issues than I did when I started the book Well I really interested in uture energy and this book is absolutely in my shopping list I hope I can buy or get it soon Looks like it s contain a pro and contra stuffs really ascinating and challenging to readfinally I have bought this book at Kinokuniy.
