Edwin Black does it again, takes no prisoners—a bold plan. Edwin Black does it again in THE PLAN. He provokes, takes no prisoners and takes on almost every special interest group in gridlocked Washington with a bold plan to address a clear and present danger the U.S. is facing—an energy Pearl Harbor.
Bold--should inspire the next president. Black’s bold, aggressive plan for saving oil in a hurry and breaking our addiction should inspire the next President to adopt a real energy strategy to break our shackles to the chaotic global oil market.
Remarkable and rational--highly recommended. Black states the problem clearly and without hyperbole. A sane and remarkably rational step-by-step scheme for quitting our fossil fuel dependency. Highly Recommended.
We still have time for Black's Plan. The largest economy and most powerful democracy on Earth can be put on its knees by an Oil Jihad. Is America ready? Edwin Black, demonstrates that we're not ready to confront this onslaught. We still have time to read his Plan and make decisions.
Black throws down the gauntlet. In his own inimitable style, Edwin Black kickstarts the debate on what to do when the inevitable happens—a disruption in the oil flow. Black throws down the gauntlet. I challenge policymakers to read THE PLAN and dare them to do better.
Understand the crisis, find a solution. Only read this book if you want to understand the energy crisis and find a solution. If you want to remain ignorant, selfish, and in support of American-hating foreign oil producers and domestic rapacious gasoline companies you should avoid Edwin Black's THE PLAN.
Clean and Concise. The thesis is simple: How to rescue society when the oil stops – or the day before. ...Policy makers are unwilling to confront the issues. Black is willing and has done so in a clean, concise fashion.
Black sees the light. Edwin Black sees the light, and it's electric. Japan has a plan. So does Poland and the Czech Republic. Maybe Congress should read THE PLAN and get a clue.
Sane and remarkable scheme. Black presents... a remarkable scheme... citing published, non-controversial works plus his own primary research, which generally keeps the proceedings well out of the realm of science fiction.
A Real Plan for Catastrophe. Edwin Black proposes "the plan" to get America out of a catastrophic oil crisis. The plan is a multi-stage deployment of actions, which, as the author readily admits, are not without severe restrictions and societal limitations. However, he points out that we've had to endure many of these same restrictions, in one way or another, during other times of emergency and that we've always come out to the better.
Invaluable, incredible benefit. The historical data contained in the first three chapters alone make the book invaluable because this one-stop repository of information would be virtually impossible for anyone with less of a research staff to compile. ...Most of the plan could and should be put immediately into play by the new President. ...It would be far better to do it now before we’re counting the days until the foreign oil in our storage tanks runs out.
It’s about time. It’s about time that SOMEONE had a plan to deal with an energy emergency. THE PLAN is an innovative set of solutions to a potentially critical problem.
Black lays it all out week by week. The required actions are all rational and involve the use of existing technologies. Black lays it all out week by week, with each successive step building upon previous ones to move away from the petroleum morass.
Realistic.  Edwin Black’s latest book, THE PLAN, sets up a realistic scenario in which the west and America must confront a catastrophic crisis (versus the “mere” escalation of oil prices to oppressive levels) in which foreign oil is cut off due to “petropolitical” design or terrorism. 
Fascinating. Edwin Black has assembled a fascinating and practical plan for how America can survive, and actually thrive during a transition that could eliminate our dependence on foreign oil.
