Resilient Earth Press's blog
The Resilient Earth Press is pleased to announce that a number of our titles are now available in ePub format from Kobo. We have received a number of inquiries about the availability in formats other than Kindle and so we are in the process of making our catalog available for other eBook formats. The first three books to be released on Kobo are The Resilient Earth, Parker's Folly, and Peggy Sue. Each of these new versions contain the same text and illustrations as the existing Kindle editions, only the document format has been changed.
The Resilient Earth Press recently announced new, reformatted versions of several of our ebook titles. If you have previously purchased the Kindle editions of The Resilient Earth or The Energy Gap you should be receiving an email from Amazon with instructions for updating your copy to the latest, reformatted versions. The new versions are significantly more readable than the older versions. Most tables have been turned into images so they are no longer mangled; footnotes, which previously were crammed into the text haphazardly, have been moved to the references section; a usable table of contents is present at the end of the book; and, most noticeable, many of the illustrations are now in color, a feature that the print version does not have. There is no charge for the update(s).
Gas prices, oil sands, fracking and the Canadian pipeline have all thrust energy back into the headlines. Politicians posture, eco-alarmists protest and those global warming fanatics continue to predict the end of the world as we know it. If you are tired of the hype and disinformation, if you really want to understand energy—where it comes from, how it works and how much of it the world has—then you need a copy of The Energy Gap. In this follow-on to The Resilient Earth, Hoffman and Simmons address the world's energy questions with the same wit and erudition displayed in their previous work. Even better, in honor of April 15th, tax day in the US, you can now download a copy of The Energy Gap for free from Amazon.
