Hand this little-yet-weighty volume to our President next time you’re in a handshake line—and you’ll save the world. An optimistic (for those of you who go in for that sort of thing) and comprehensive plan for rescuing the earth, energy-wise, from ourselves.

    If you want to get the very best start on under standing the past, present and future of electrical energy development and use in the United States, this book is it. Even though I am reasonably well informed on energy issues (as a Montana Public Service Commissioner in charge of regulating electric rates and developing energy policy) I find myself referring to "Power of the People" quite often to frame issues in the context of "the big picture" and what inevitably lies ahead in our energy future.
