Good subject too good voice
- Celina Harp
Utterly boring book/audio
The book is very boring and does not capture the reader's attention. The author merelt enumerats a million ways of energy, its measurement, and impact and compared the quantum of energy with some day-to-day activity. The book and the content never impressed me. It is neither for the scholars nor for the layman.
