What we at SUNY ESF like to refer to as "the energy bible". There is so much to learn from this book. It covers in detail many topics including:
the relationship between energy and economics
;
Energy return on investment (EROI);
manufacturing;
agriculture;
fossil fuels (oil, natural gas, shale oil, coal);
nuclear power;
solar energy;
energy extraction and its relationship to human health;
energy and croplands;
energy and fisheries;
energy and water;
energy and forestry.
It is a thoroughly good read, not just for energy enthusiasts, but for anyone who is curious enough to know more about energy.
