Physics for Future Presidents by Richard A. Muller comes in two variations. This is the version most popular with the general public and recommended by IX Power executives for those just getting interested in the subject of energy.


Physics and Technology for Future Presidents is the official textbook for Muller’s course. It goes a bit deeper on the subjects covered in Physics for Future Presidents.


A Great Aridness by William deBuys is a book worth reading – particularly if you live or hope to one day live, in the American Southwest.
