This book is CRITICAL to the success of your energy business. Behemoth: The Story of Power is from the time of Hero. This book is THE book on the history of energy and power. It includes who did it and why; what problems they faced and how they were solved. The business model of James Watt in this book is better than the business model of most modern fuel cell companies. This is a story of the evolution and growth of energy that hardly anyone really understands. Every alternative energy project, EVERY ONE of them has FAILED; died in flames, because those doing it did NOT understand the true evolution of energy which is so finely illustrated in this book. If you want to be in the energy field, you’d better know Hero, Papin, Newcomen, Savory, Watt, Otto and Diesel.
Windmills and Wind Motors $14.95
It is more than a little strange that amateur engineers often neglect the windmill. Wind-power is free, and while it is admittedly erratic it must surely appeal to the mechanical mind as a labor saver and valuable renewable energy resource. Windmills and Wind Motors presents a series of practical, original designs that can be used for model-making, experimentation, or even for the more practical purpose of power production. The book is a must have for wind-energy enthusiasts of all ages and knowledge levels. If you want to guide your child to an A+ in this year’s science fair, get this book! If you believe in the potential of wind power and want to experiment with it in your own back yard, get this book! Finally, and perhaps most importantly, if you want to build your own power producing wind-energy-plant in order to curtail those skyrocketing energy costs, get this book! This excellent little book provides you with all the information you need to complete exciting and educational home-wind-energy projects!
