Updating the book, now four years on, might offer analysis of the key challenge of entrepreneurship -- persuading investors you're still viable.
While chapters are good, few chapters are quite intersting from technology perspective. Chapter related to Capturing efficiancy through biomimicry provides in-depth idea how to copy natures desgins and why. Nature's design has in-built suistenability.
This book includes technologies such Space based solar power stations, Battery technology, Alage based bio fuels, Nuclear power, and Tornado Power. It is worth read for everyone interested in energy sector.
I wish the font of the printed version was a bit different, that there were more pictures and charts in it and in color - but these are minor issues and do not take away anything from the book. Highly recommended, even if you are not directly invested in the Clean Energy space (I am not).
