Quite possibly the most important book about energy in a generation.At the same time that world energy demand steadily increases, Americans are also being asked to be better stewards of the environment. Some even insist that we will have to make drastic changes in our American way of life in order to avoid a catastrophe. Now is the perfect moment to renew our commitment to use the greatest scientific discovery of the 20th century—the fulfillment of Einstein's formula, E=mc2—as the forward-thinking solution. It is clean, natural, and wholesome. Terrestrial energy is a friend to humanity and, without doubt, the only realistic, practical answer to our nation's energy dilemma.

User Review  - Jani-Petri - Goodreads

Pretty ok. I liked Tucker's sarcasm. On the whole the content is quite accurate, but there were some factual errors that I found annoying. Nothing serious enough to undermine his point, but sufficiently annoying to bug me. Read full review
