THE POWERHOUSE Inside the Invention of a Battery to Save the World

by | Read by Mike Chamberlain

Contemporary Culture • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Like the Energizer Bunny, narrator Mike Chamberlain powers through this informative account of science and intrigue with an upbeat delivery. He details the history of energy storage as a prelude to the current quest for reliable long-lasting batteries, which pits China against the U.S. Listeners learn that a major breakthrough in lithium ion batteries will affect more than Teslas and iPhones--and hear about its potential impact on the oil industry, the economy as a whole, and climate change. Though packed with technical details and scientific minutiae, Chamberlain's delivery, combined with the engaging story and profiles of the battery geniuses, results in a well-paced audiobook.
