ZOOM The Global Race to Fuel the Car of the Future

Zoom goes zero to sixty in nothing flat It's an exciting ride into the future of the world's favorite physical object the automobile Gregg Easterbrook author of THE PROGRESS PARADOX Zoom offers a new way to think about cars and energy that's key to understanding the forces shaping business today It's smart well informed and insightful exactly what one would expect from two of The Economist's best journalists Chris Anderson author of THE LONG TAIL Zoom puts oil in its sights and sueezes off one telling round after another Car lovers will see a sunny future with other fuels; OPEC a steadily darkening twilight R James Woolsey VP Booz Allen Hamilton; former Director of Central Intelligence An incisive analysis of the end of the petroleum age including all its repercussions and opportunities Vinod Khosla Khosla Ventures Oil is the problem Cars. I had mixed feelings on this book The future of energy is obviously a topic that I m really interested in And as the authors both write for the Economist I figured it would be well written knowledgeable and informative It was informative and fairly knowledgeable but surprisingly poorly written I think the main problem stemmed from the fact that it was written by two authors The reason I say this is that the authors had an irritating tendency to repeat themselves or likely each other Also for the first 200 pages of the book there is little that could be labelled a coherent argument It is like a haphazard lurch through the automobile and oil industries with random anecdotes and interviews with the industries big names sprinkled in Of course while this is a bit frustrating the authors are obviously well tuned in to the oil and automobile scenes which makes these chapters informative despite the lack of arguments The one other frustrating aspect of the book was the writing style The Economist magazine prides itself on its objectivity above all articles always attempt to look at both sides of the argument This is an excellent uality in a magazine and a good uality in a book but for the first two thirds of the book I felt that the authors went a little bit too far in trying to present a balanced picture to the detriment of presenting any actual opinion or making a compelling argument Despite all of these complaints I was glad to have read this book The final 100 pages are unified than the previous 200 and once the authors got to their point I thought it was a good one I learned a lot in anecdotes than in hard facts but even so I feel like I have a better understanding of these issues than I did when I started the book Heads of the Colored People flat It's an exciting ride into the The Syrian Rebellion favorite physical object the automobile Gregg Easterbrook author of THE PROGRESS PARADOX Zoom offers a new way to think about cars and energy that's key to understanding the Lovers Destined from two of The Economist's best journalists Chris Anderson author of THE LONG TAIL Zoom puts oil in its sights and sueezes off one telling round after another Car lovers will see a sunny Prima che tu dica «Pronto» future with other Sweeter Than Wine fuels; OPEC a steadily darkening twilight R James Woolsey VP Booz Allen Hamilton; Lady Ariana former Director of Central Intelligence An incisive analysis of the end of the petroleum age including all its repercussions and opportunities Vinod Khosla Khosla Ventures Oil is the problem Cars.
