About this book

As talk of 'peak oil' hits the headlines almost daily, there will be a glut of books on world energy options over the next few years. Lovins is one of the most charismatic environmentalists in the US, and this book is sure to lead the pack.

From the publisher's announcement:

Enough about the oil problem. Here's the solution.

Over a few decades, starting now, a vibrant US economy (then others) can completely phase out oil. This will save a net $70 billion a year, revitalize key industries and rural America, create a million jobs, and enhance security.

Here's the roadmap - independent, peer-reviewed, co-sponsored by the Pentagon - for the transition beyond oil, led by business and profit.

What people have said about the book:

`We can, as Amory Lovins and his colleagues show vividly, win the oil endgame...[A]n intriguing case that is important enough to merit careful attention by all of us, private citizens and business and political leaders alike' GEORGE P. SHULTZ, Distinguished Fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, former Secretary of State, the Treasury, and Labor

`This exciting synthesis of how to eliminate America's oil dependence could be the most important step in many years toward secure and affordable energy. Its novel but persuasive ideas, which hold promise of revitalizing American industry and agriculture, should appeal to conservatives and liberals alike'
President JIMMY CARTER

`Amory Lovins has had more impact on our energy use than any single person in the world. Now his team has produced one of the most important energy studies in decades. It merits careful examination as a profitable strategy for achieving energy security, economic prosperity, and environmental quality through smart business strategies accelerated by efficient government policy'
WILLIAM MARTIN, Chairman, Council on Foreign Relations Energy Security Group

`One of the best analyses of energy policy yet produced'
TIME Magazine

Media reviews
'We've embarked on the beginning of the Last Days of the Age of Oil' Mike Bowlin, Chairman, American Petroleum Institute 'A clear and penetrating business case for how a profitable transition [away from oil] for the automotive, truck, aviation and oil sectors can be achieved and why they should embrace technological innovation rather than be destroyed by it' Sir Mark Moody-Stuart, former Chairman of Shell
