EXCELLENT!! By P. Martin
I was writing a dissertation on integrating renewable energies into the home and this was probably the most helpful book I read during the course of my studies. Bearing in mind that I have probably read about 25 books on this topic it says a lot for the book and its author!! Highly recommended!!

A wise man from the east! By A. Cargill
Experience is everything and Dr McCrea has drawn on his extensive depth of knowledge, insight and hands-on experience to bring to the masses an excellent publication. This book explains this subject better than most and I would highly recommend it to anyone who has an interest in energy matters of today and tomorrow. Great job Andy!
