This book is a concise overview of the critical dilemma facing modern civilizaton as the world depletes the remaining geological inventory of finite fossil-fueled energy. The only few, possible, honest, and realistic solutions within the short-time frame available for action are offered on micro- and macro-levels. Diversionary dead-ends are discussed in detail because they waste critical time and encourage continued growth and consumption to increasingly unsustainable levels.

The author is a retired engineer and life-long farmer, who has been concerned about fossil-fuel depletion for many years. During the last several decades he has researched this problem extensively as well as designed, built, and tested low-energy machines for agriculture and transportation in anticipation of a drastically simpler, localized lifestyle. This work has evolved into numerous lectures and three editions of this book.
