The Bottomless Well

"This is the book for anyone who deplores "group think" and demands original analysis. The authors by careful research and a clear eye destroy the six myths about energy they say constitutes today's conventional wisdom. Indeed the book is about "mastering power itself—the capture and release of energy" and its effect on society, ours and others. Anyone with an open mind will never think about "the energy problem" quite the same way after reading this powerful and provocative book."

Walter B. Wriston


"No one with a responsibility for policy—or an interest in it—can grasp the new realities of energy and the environment without mastering the iconoclastic themes and insights of this supremely true and contrarian work."

George Gilder


"The Bottomless Well performs a valuable service by putting human ingenuity at the center of the debate over energy."

Peter Coy
