Energy: A Textbook - 9766

Energy: A Textbook is written for people who want to be able to discuss energy with confidence. There is nothing quite like knowing data --- and knowing how to handle the numbers --- so that you can hold your own in conversations, write sensible letters to the editor, and distinguish fact from fiction. It is a superb choice for the home-schooling crowd. This book deals with realism from the get-go in a completely non-partisan way. The equation for power from a hydroelectric dam is the same, regardless of any political, philosophical, religious, or sociological point of view. Energy: A Textbook enables you to reduce the complexities seen in the news media and in advertisements to their basic simplicity, and to develop a coherent view of energy that applies just as well at the international level as at the off-the-grid farm level.
