"Electricity goes far beyond physics into economy, politics, environment, welfare, sociology, etc. The book guides the reader through the various realms of electricity. Energy is a market product, which one can buy and sell, but it could also be considered as a basic human right. It is crucial for the economy, so it could be used as a strong political weapon, more powerful today than tanks. Electricity drives major technological revolutions: the electric bulb, telegraph, radio and computers. The book argues that the next revolution - electric cars - is about to come. We just need a snow ball to initiate an avalanche. According to the authors, an avalanche may come from the Tatra mountains towards the Baltic Sea, and then it would continue throughout Europe."
