Yes, this is definitely worth reading. I read/skimmed it (you can get a free pdf) and learned more about practical energy futures than from any other source. The goal of the book is to provide a framework for comparing energy strategies to reduce/eliminate carbon emissions. Spoiler alert: think concentrated solar and/or nuclear.

My only nit: the book is primarily UK oriented though there are sections applying similar analysis for North America. A "translation" of the book targeting the US would be helpful.
