Review:

Your book is a treasure. Scientifically accurate, clearly written, with inviting diagrams--all of which helps beginning learners, of all ages, build an understanding of electricity. Many will see the light about the value of renewables. --Fran Barhydt, Director of Curriculum & Instruction, Vermont Energy Education Program

At long last, a crucial issue for the survival of our society--electricity from renewable energy--has received comprehensive and clear treatment. --Dr. Kevin Starr, State Librarian of California, Emeritus

For anyone looking for a resource book on renewable energy, look no more. Energy for Keeps is cleverly written and illustrated. With Ben Franklin as host, the journey is a historical, as well as scientific exploration of our energy options and their consequences. --Susan T. Schleith, Education Coordinator, Florida Solar Energy Center
