Customer Reviews

A Timely and Important Book  August 13, 2011

I like this collection of essays, easy to read, very inspiring, and yet not so pessimistically stuck in the Collapse Szenarios like in some of his previous books. Recommended reading from an important author in this field, covering an interesting diversity if topics related to peak oil/ energy descent....

Peak Everything : Waking up to the Century of Declines: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.


Transitioning gracefully from the Age of Excess to the Era of Modesty.
