This book is not highly technical, but some knowledge of elementary chemistry would be helpful. It first presents an overview of energy which is followed by a discussion of the production, consumption, uses, reserves, costs, advantages and disadvantages of the four nonrenewable fuels: petroleum, natural gas, coal and uranium. A similar discussion of the renewable sources of energy (biomass, geothermal, tidal, solar, water and wind) is then given. Electricity, its uses and how it is generated, is then examined and is followed by a discussion of how and by whom energy is used. The pollution associated with energy and global warming are then considered, and finally, a historic review of energy policy is presented. An appendix on the history and science of energy is also provided for those who would like a general review of science before reading the remainder of the book.
