Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

Energized by Edward M. Lerner

This book was flat out scary.  The plot could be pulled from current events.   This details the international subterfuge that forces the United States and most of the world into an increased state of energy dependency. 

I think one of the things that I found most frightening about this book was its plausibility. Every presidential candidates that I can remember as promised us energy independence. This book explores the premise of the opposite happening.   

The protagonists in this book start as adversaries and grow into a much more compatible relationship.  There is a not so subtle glorifying of engineers whom my son, the engineer, saw as factual description rather than glorification.    Throughout the book, examples of energy alternatives are touched upon as an aside to the plot.   Lerner does an excellent job in defining energy dependency and the perfidy necessary to promote it.
The novel includes astronomy, rocket science,  Russian treachery and greed and a complicated but very entertaining plot.

I highly recommend it.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
