Review

Kirkus Reviews
“A work of intricate research free of hype, offering serious pros and cons with a sometimes whimsical flourish.”

Booklist
“An illuminating, ultimately hopeful perspective on energy policy.”
 
Library Journal
“A pragmatic, authoritative look into energy alternatives for general readers.”

Matt Ridley, Wall Street Journal
“[Powering the Future] is written with cheerfully can-do brio and is full of fascinating calculations.... Mr. Laughlin brings a refreshing, upbeat outlook for our energy future.”

Discover
“[A] sardonic and vivid exercise in futurology.”

New Scientist
“Laughlin says many useful things with a pleasing directness.”
