Book Review by Karl-Friedrich Lenz

All-Electric America was written by S. David Freeman, who was born in 1926 and has a long career as CEO of various energy companies. The second author is Leah Y. Parks, a journalist covering the electricity sector.

The Kindle edition of this book (which I read) was published in October 2015.
