Met my expectations but could have been written better

sketchy on details, too broad of outline.

I am not sure who the intended audience is. I envisioned a book for facility managers and nonelectrical engineers, but it is mostly pitched below that level.
It is clearly not intended for someone trying to understand the issues involved in distributed generation below utility scale, energy storage, or backup generation, which are not mentioned. Wind and solar get brief mentions with no discussion of technical issues., Cogeneration is covered briefly in terms of energy efficiency. High-voltage DC transmission gets some coverage..
If you have an intellectual curiosity about the present electrical transmission and distribution system, and the basics of system stability, this is probably a good starting point. Those topics are pitched at a somewhat higher level. But the treatment of these topics will be more understandable if you already know a bit more about ac power than the book presents.
Maybe its best use is as a summary of how the industry was thinking 10-15 years ago, and thus by implication how much things have changed.

The Content is very good and suitable for a nonelectrical professional, which was almost what I have been looking for, for a while. However, I found the images (unclear) which are black and white, especially in comparison to its price, which could be considered somehow expensive.

If you need the electrical system explained in normal terms this is the book to get very informative even if you are not in the electrical business this knowledge is good for everyone

Fantastic book. I have a finance background and have read several books about energy to make some investments and this has been the best so far.

This book is an excellent primer to the language and elementary physics of the utility industry and provides a good introduction to the gross architecture of the power generation and delivery value chain.
