A veteran Wall Street Journal reporter, Bill Paul takes the investor’s perspective on the development of alternative energy sources. In this easy-to-understand book he explains how particular companies, industry developments and strategic forces will propel the creation of a new energy industry. He covers all the bases: Mideast politics, synthetic fuels, oil shale, and energy synergies between electric and oil. He provides practical advice, including three appendices, a glossary and, most important, a list of 100 companies that are poised to make revolutionary innovations, for speculators who are seeking the next big thing. The writing is occasionally choppy, but this is not a significant flaw in a book that getAbstract believes is full of literally valuable information, some of which might help you strike it rich.
In this summary, you will learn
- Which global forces are shaping the creation of a new energy industry;
- Which biofuel products are the most promising; and
- Which energy companies present good investment opportunities.
