What People are Saying About This

Susan Hockfield

"Much of the debate about clean energy veers from the arcane to the politicized. With this new volume, Leonardo Maugeri offers a refreshingly clear exploration of the history and future of our energy options, from oil to the most tractable alternative energy sources. From his perspective as a corporate leader, he argues compellingly that to achieve a clean energy future, we must 'terminate the perception of energy as near-near costless input' and decouple investments in energy alternatives from fleeting spikes in the price of oil."

Daniel Yergin

"Beyond the Age of Oil is an important and timely contribution to understand our energy future. It provides an even-handed, deeply-informed – and highly readable – exploration of the energy choices that the world faces. Writing both as highly-knowledgeable specialist and as a 'rational environmentalist', Leonardo Maugeri provides a comparative framework for understanding the options – thus illuminating the challenges facing not only the familiar sources but also renewables and alternatives. He makes sense of many of the most vexing issues. Maugeri demonstrates not only why the energy question is so important for the world but also how we can constructively seek to answer it."

Daniel Yergin, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Prize: the Epic Quest for Oil, Money, and Power

John Hamre

"In a very engaging narrative, Maugeri brings to life normally dry and inaccessible material--energy economics, geology, and geopolitics--in a pragmatic book that is a pleasure to read."
