On the Grid

On the grid. Scott Huler (Rodale, 2010)

I thought this book was going to explain all about the great new “smart grid” for electric power distribution, but it was actually about our existing infrastructure. However, it did provide a good background for understanding the smart grid. Each chapter explained a different part of the infrastructure that we rely on in everyday life in the United States – water, sewer, electric, trash, roads, electricity, natural gas. It would have been better as a documentary television program than a book, so we could have seen the things he described. Still, I found it interesting and informative.
