". . .a much-needed, accessibly written update on the past, present and future of new energy technologies. Manning and Garbon illustrate how each of us can become a part of the 'new energy movement.'" --Christy L. Frazier, Managing Editor, Infinite Energy Magazine

Very well referenced!
KR Thurman
This book could very well be given the above title, at least as far as non-polluting, renewable energy sources are concerned.
Bani Sodermark
I consider it to be one of the core books in the field, and recommend it highly.

Format: Paperback
This landmark book by two of my close and trusted friends and associates, Jeane Manning and Joel Garbon, can become a primary vehicle of new energy understanding and promotion. In addition to providing a great primer for newcomers to the field, it can help the well-seasoned veteran round out his knowledge of some of the most important historic yet-to-emerge, proven technologies in the field. It's not just educational, but it is a call to action to galvanize the public into awareness of these breakthrough technologies and to instill in them a cry to bring down the barriers that have hitherto kept these game-changing technologies from making it to market. We're talking about technologies that can be primary power producers, 24/7/365, portable, scalable, safe, and not only do no harm to the environment, but can help clean it up -- with a price tag that is far below what conventional energy technologies provide.

This book could very well be given the above title, at least as far as non-polluting, renewable energy sources are concerned. The picture it presents of the scientific community, as regards openness to novel ideas and concepts, is far from being a pretty one. In spite of that, the overall message of the book is one of positive outcomes and ultimate hope. If we change our collective consumerist habits and open ourselves to a more inclusive awareness, that is.

This book has been meticulously researched. The main aim of the authors' is to highlight the fact that several renewable sources of energy already abound and that there are many people who have already created the technology to tap into them. However, in recounting their stories, it clearly appears that a major reason for these efforts having been kept unknown from the public at large, is, the insurmountable opposition created by high priests of scientific institutions and their corporate partners in industry. Together, the latter named have succeeded in suppressing and strangulating all individual endeavours to finding solutions to our energy problems, aiming instead, to protect their own financial vested interests.

Most of the people whose innovations find mention in this book, are renegades, individualists with few resources and many ideas. The areas in which their expertise have come forth, (at least as far as this book is concerned), are primarily perpetual motion magnetic motors, whose energy sources are not clearly understood scientifically, and have not been studied or formulated in detail. A few have learnt to harness the energy of the vacuum, or what they call, zero point energy. Others use high powered magnets, using the intrinsic nature of the magnet, to power household devices.

Format: Paperback
Jeane Manning and Joel Garbon have produced a book that is worthy of anyone implicated in this crime - the crime of complicity - of using obsolete, filthy energy technology to power our world. We are all part of the problem, and this book shows what viable solutions exist, and how we can all advocate them in our own circumstances. The information is fresh and mostly non-technical. It is "Everything you always wanted to know about how to live on Planet Earth without destroying it, but didn't know who to ask."

A well organized and thought-provking book for anyone interested in a readable and comprehensive overview of Advanced Energy Technologies and how they can change the world. Authors Jeane Manning and Joel Garbon combine the best of their respective journalistic and scientific perspectives to produce a fascinating overview of some of the new energy devices that already exist, especially in Canada. I consider it to be one of the core books in the field, and recommend it highly. Elliott Maynard, Ph.D., Arcos Cielos Research Center,Sedona, Arizona.

I have read most of this before in Infinite Energy magazine. Would have liked more technical details especially the one science project.

Read this book if you are interested in any kind of energy other than coal, oil, natural gas, or water-driven, then ask yourself, why haven't these methods been developed and put into use? If you want one book about alternative energy, this is it.
