A master storyteller as well as a leading energy expert, Daniel Yergin continues the riveting story begun in his Pulitzer Prizewinning book, The Prize. In The Quest, Yergin shows us how energy is an engine of global political and economic change and conflict, in a story that spans the energies on which our civilization has been built and the new energies that are competing to replace them. The Questtells the inside stories, tackles the tough questions, and reveals surprising insights about coal, electricity, and natural gas. He explains how climate change became a great issue and leads readers through the rebirth of renewable energies, energy independence, and the return of the electric car. Epic in scope and never more timely, The Questvividly reveals the decisions, technologies, and individuals that are shaping our future.
