My Review: 

I found Roger Duncan and Michael E Webber’s The Future of Buildings, Transportation and Power to be such an informative read. After reading this, it is very apparent that they did a thorough job at researching this subject. The authors point out some interesting ideas for the future for energy. The book is broken down into ten chapters and six parts. Parts two to four thorough tell about The Future of Buildings, The Future of Transportation and The Future of Power. After each chapter there is a summary to remind readers the importance they had just read. Within the pages, there many graphs and diagrams to back up at what was written. It is written so well that any reader can easily read and understand the matter. It includes a lot of perspectives I have not heard of even would have never dreamed of. It is really fascinating. 

I am giving The Future of Buildings, Transportation and Power four and half stars. I would love to see if Roger Duncan and Michael E Webber will release another book more about our future. I thought this one to be pretty good. I will recommend it for readers who like to read about our world’s future possibilities. I, also, believe it would be good for those who are interested in technology, energy, and transportation. I think the readers will be as captivated as I was. It is most definitely worth a read and not to be one to be missed. 

I received The Future of Buildings, Transportation and Power from the publisher. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
