"This is an interesting concise re´sume´ of the current situation but I am not clear why the (British) Society for Chemical Industry has decided to support it. The references are up-to-date but over half are in French, a fact not likely to appeal to monoglot Anglophones." (Chromatographia, July 2010)
"One of the biggest problems faced when trying to communicate the scale of the issues facing global energy supply in the coming years is that there are so many of them. … That this book manages to cover all these issues in just over 150 pages, and remain[s] accessible and interesting is a great compliment to Rojey's skill as a writer." (Enagri, November 2009)
