Book Review: ‘How the World Really Works’ by Vaclav Smil

On the jacked blurb to Vaclav Smil’s new book ‘How the World Really Works by Vaclav Smil, A Scientists Guide to our Past, Present and Future’, we read ‘if you are anxious about the future and infuriated that we aren’t doing enough about it, please read this book’. We did and were entertained with Smil’s analysis of the world energy situation, his exposé on the ‘four pillars of civilization’ and on our extensive reliance on fossil fuel. Smil likes to challenge current thinking on energy, food, technology and related matters. But when you are through with How the World, our may be more anxious than when you started reading!
