The Last Oil Shock (David Strahan)
This was a rather good overview of the Peak Oil problem, from a British perspective, and despite being pretty well informed on the subject - or so I like to tell myself - there were a number of things I learnt, particularly with regard to details about Hubbert's techniques of forecasting oil production and the influence of energy consumption on economic growth. Recommended, especially if you haven't read anything else on the subject.
Strahan is a BBC journalist; his blog is here; a relevant Guardian article from yesterday is here.
