    This book has a confusing title, and the information presented within reflects that. Content is rather haphazardly organised - you get the feeling everything is "all over the place". But primarily, the book provides a simple overview of the 3 types of energy. Not quite sure where the "career" part comes in.

    A little bit dry and overly detailed for the intended age group but had a lot of good information in it.
