It takes a while to build up the constitution to listen to Vaclav Smil for a week, but I'm never too disappointed that I did. This book reads a lot like an encyclopedia, which means you're definitely going to be picking up tidbits on the evolution of our human understanding of energy, and relative efficiencies, but don't expect too much story to it. Overall worthwhile, but if you're not a die-hard of non-fiction, or really interested in energy derived from solar energy at some point during its creation... you're not going to stick with this listen.

The science and organization by the author was well executed. But the speakers voice, the epitome of a game show host, was overdone, repetitive in tone, and distracting.
