A survey of then-current options for alternative propulsion cars in the USNon-technical (deals more with behaviour than construction details). Quite well-balanced: addresses "green" issues but doesn't assume that the reader is a tree-hugger. For example, very properly in my view, the author handles man-made global warming as theory rather than fact without requiring the reader to adopt one position or anotherCovers hybrids, EVs (briefly), flex fuel, displacement on demand, diesels (old news for Europeans but less common in th US), autogas and hydrogenClearly written, nicely laid out with lots of space on the page. An easy read.
