Forget J K Rowling - this is a real page turner. Do you think I may be exaggerating....... Actually if you are interested in energy and that is pretty much all of us, then there is some very interesting and easy to digest info in this publication. One graph simply showing pretty much a doubling of global energy demand since the 1970's !
