For someone whose entire capacity of knowledge stemmed from a 4th-grade research project, but who was pretty self-satisfied about her knowledge of the energy problem and its possible solutions nonetheless, this book was an eye-opener. Anyone who believes that they are a clean-energy advocate -- or anyone who believes that renewable energy is not a necessity -- should read this book. It is a primer in the very best sense of the word, readying the mind to think critically about and discuss (and debate if necessary) our consumption of energy, our current energy sources and energy possibilities. The diverse set of readings show us where we've been, where we are and where we can go; it juxtaposes the dreams that scientists and policy-makers had decades ago with today's energy realities.

Laura Nader's Reader serves as an introduction to prominent thinkers in the energy field -- Amory Lovins, Duane Lockard Barbara Rose Johnston stand out in my mind -- and, perhaps most importantly, to the idea that while energy shifts must by their nature be revolutionary, they need not be radical. The idea that we must subject ourselves to authoritarian rationing in order to limit our energy use or change our energy sources -- the idea that placing limits on our energy use is somehow anti-progress or illiberal or undemocratic -- is soundly turned on its head in this reader. Through the readings, we learn that we have a choice. We learn to think about our energy sources as intrinsically tied up in the way we live, rather than merely fueling the way we live.

"Energy in Action" portions of the book give readers hope by providing examples of paradigm shifts in thought and action that are already being played out with regard to energy use.

While a few readings are a bit redundant -- for instance, the many mentions of Nader's work in the Committee On Nuclear and Alternative Energy Systems study groups could easily have been replaced by one or two -- and the space in the book could have been used to flesh out other issues like energy policy's relationship with foreign policy or on energy possibilities other than solar, overall the book is a great read. While I used the book for a course with Professor Nader at UC Berkeley, this book is not only for students. It's a necessity for anyone who wants to speak authoritatively on energy issues, and to think critically about the way they live their lives.
Great information and compilation. However, it really needs a much better index. There are major time lapses so pay attention to when each piece is published.
Since I bought this book used I was expecting it to be a bit trashy, but it was in really great condition.
