February 1, 2003 The Party's Over (TPO) is an excellently and thoroughly researched treatment of precisely the oil depletion problem, almost entirely free of the usual hidden political agendas, irrelevant personal memoirs, and philosophical delusions. I would recommend TPO to anybody on this list . . . as a convenient and politically neutral "Pack-'O-Facts" that can be offered to friends, family, colleagues, policy makers, and anybody else in your life or world that you may feel needs a sober sit-down and some rational talking-to about the energy future of industrial civilization. The Endnotes section at the book's end, organized by chapter, is the best bibliography I've ever seen on all aspects of the topic. This book bears direct comparison to only three other more-or-less mass or general market books that I'm aware of: Thom Hartmann, Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight; Jeremy Rifkin, The Hydrogen Economy; Kenneth Deffeyes, Hubbert's Peak: The Impending World Oil Shortage. With respect to these, I feel that TPO is: less irrelevantly philosophical than Hartmann's book, more up- to-date, and more pointedly technical in sources used. very similar to the first half of Rifkin's work, where he delineates the problem, but again a more comprehensive and at the same time more focused presentation. The second half of Rifkin's work, where he cheerleads in rather political mode for a salvaging of the world's economy via distributed hydrogen/fuel-cell infrastructure is not directly relevant, except I suppose inasmuch as it would seem to contradict Heinberg's skepticism about propping up global industrial civilization through a 11th hour switch to alternatives. I'd personally go with Heinberg's conclusions. again, in topic/coverage very similar to Deffeye's quite interesting work, but frankly for those who want a quick and focused rollup presentation/package for opening the topic with others, Deffeye's work is overly encumbered with too much aranca about oil geology and personal author's memoirs. Overall, The Party's Over will serve as the state-of-the-art topic-opener on Hubbert catastrophism, for people on this list, well into the foreseeable future.

Thorough discussion of everything from ecology to human history to the automobile to the roles of oil to ways to evaluate the value and efficiency of various forms of energy. It's fascinating and very engaging. I'd recommend it to anyone living in an industrial society.

Heinberg presents an assessment of the status of remaining global fossil fuel supplies that will give little hope to those who believe that industrial society can gradually transition from fossil fuels over the next few decades into renewables.

He presents a bleak future for the oil age and advocates the adoption of a sustainable society, which will require a completely different worldview than the one(s) that have brought modern society to the current state of affairs. ( )

This was the first book I read on the topic of peak oil, so it was an eye-opening experience. It makes the case for peak oil to a general audience without too much technical detail and describes the likely consequences. He may be too dismissive of alternative power sources, notably solar thermal technologies, which M.K. Hubbert thought were viable in principle even in the 1960's, but at this point we are a long way from making that a reality. ( )

This is the best general introduction to the subject of "peak oil" and one of the first to break this subject to a general audience. Readers of TheOilDrum.com won't find anything in this they don't already know, but for newbies it's great. ( )

If you want to read a realisitic assessment of what the current stae of the world's oil reserves are, then this book is for you. Heinberg looks at an explians authoritative evidence that results in disturbing , serious and perhaps catastrophic results. If you want to understand how the world's oil supply is distributed and what the options for change are, this is for you. ( )
