The book takes an overall look on the global economics of energy. And does it well. I now have a base level understanding of every relevant source of industrial, vehicle and electrical energy. Exactly what I was looking for.One thing, however. I strongly advice to google yourself an understanding of the scales of energy measurements. Things like global daily oil usage in barrels (~80 million), yearly electricity consumption of your home country (around 90 TWh in finland), electricity output of a mediocre nuclear power plant (700 MW where I'm from). That kind of info doesn't transmit very well in the book, and knowing it beforehand helps to understand what the writer is really communicating.
A very well written book. Extremely useful and fascinating topic in an easy-to-digest format. I couldn't recommend more. I actually started applying the techniques I learned from this book in my medical studies and honestly feel like I've made enormous progress.
