Matt Doeden began his career as a sports writer. Since then, he's spent more than a decade writing and editing children's nonfiction. Matt lives in Minnesota with his family.Review:
"The authors of these books attempt to give a balanced view of the debate on the issues covered. The goal is to provide the reader with straightforward information on both sides of the issue so the reader will be able to form his or her own opinion based on objective data about whether to support or oppose the topic. Each volume is a visual delight, replete with colored graphics and photographs. Throughout each book are brief articles and quotes from USA TODAY about the issue. This would be an first-rate series for school library media centers looking for materials to give a balanced view of controversial topics. If the other books in the series are as good as these two, then it would be a valuable addition to libraries wanting to show both sides of controversial issues facing American society today. Recommended." --Library Media Connection--Journal
"Doeden looks at the history of the search for, and use of, various energy sources; global warming and the debate surrounding the issue; energy alternatives such as nuclear, solar, wind, and water power; biomass and biofuel; and electric cars, hybrids, and fuel cells. The layout is attractive and includes full-color photographs and graphs throughout. Each chapter contains editorials and stories from the pages of USA Today. This makes the book useful to classroom teachers who want to introduce their students to newspapers as research sources and use the editorials to debate both sides of the energy/global warming issue."
