"[T]his useful, compact reference work deals with a timely and diverse topic… The 100 ‘Special Essays’ on key energy terms are a unique feature. Written by ‘eminent scientists’ these essays provide greater detail than is possible in the regular entries…  Although the book deals with some highly technical terms, the writing is sufficiently clear for both academic and public libraries to find this work of value."--CHOICE
