Commentary

The contents are quite dated—for example, the EU emissions market is merely anticipated here—and some of the personal profiles etc. seem largely irrelevant except to illustrate that all work requires individuals, and they all have their quirks. The saving grace of the book is its breadth of academic disciplines; it is evident that the authors felt they had to throw out the jargon and openly state the assumptions and limits of their various fields, which allows them to complement one another.
