People have lived and died, businesses have prospered and failed, and nations have risen to world power and declined, all over challenges with energy. In Energy: A Human History, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Richard Rhodes looks back on five centuries of progress, from such influential figures as Queen Elizabeth I to Henry Ford, and explains how wood gave way to coal, coal made room for oil, and where we turn next. In conversation with Ralph Lewin, executive director of Mechanics' Institute. FREE
