Customer Review

on January 29, 2011
I have read Deffeyes' books, Hubbert's Peak and Beyond Oil, and HIGHLY recommend his previous books as highly informative and insightful, perhaps the among the most important books I have read in the last 10 year, but this new book adds little to the discussion. It seems to ramble and is not very coherent in making any point. Deffeyes' also wanders into climate science, interpreting all climatology, including 100 year trends, in terms of geology on million year time scales.

In the end, if you have not read his previous books, READ THOSE. If you have read those, there are likely other books on the topic worth reading. This is a quick read because it is so short, but I can't say that I recommend it.
