Among the problems the world faces today, I consider the three E’s: Energy, Environment, and Education to be my mission to solve. This book is my answer to these problems. I survey as much as I can the nature of energy. I focus on inventions since antiquity to collect, store, convert, and use energy. Many of the inventions described are mine, put in the context of a proposed paradigm shift that I call personal energy. Personal energy focuses on human needs in 6 areas: water, electricity, environment, food, information, and transportation. We should live comfortable, yet sustainable. My goal is to reverse the Thomas Edison centralized model of power generation and distribution, to be replaced by local collection, storage, conversion, and use of energy. The energy source should be primarily renewable, assisted by fossil fuel as a backup energy supply. We cannot keep trashing up the earth. I tell the story from the point of view of scientists and engineers. I focus on their purposes. Science comes from a love of nature. Engineering comes from a love of mankind to solve their daily problems. I wrote this book for our young people. They are our best hope to improve our world in the 3 E’s. I want them to learn for 5 reasons: curiosity about the world, fun of learning, faith in their ability to reason and invent, love of mankind by helping people through innovation, and a pursuit of the infinity and beyond. This book is full of stories of famous scientists and engineers. Their ideas are explained in simple English. Each topic is laid out on 2 pages in full view. Each topic has a simple equation such as F=Ma, made easy to understand with a numerical example. I use plenty of big colorful pictures.
