For those interested in the broad field of energy, understanding the terminology and nomenclature that defines this changing field is important. This comprehensive and broadly functional dictionary does a masterful job of defining over 8,000 terms for audiences ranging from novices and interested readers to energy and financial professionals, college/university students, researchers, and scholars. Energy professional Beck indicates in his preface that "this book can never be complete," given the technical advances and changes that the energy industries continually undergo. Accordingly, despite its comprehensiveness, this reference work constitutes a work in progress. Readers may also wish to consult The Dictionary of Energy, edited by C. J. Cleveland and C. Morris (CH, Sep'10, 48-0027), and the Dictionary of Energy and Fuels, by C. Jones and N. Russell (CH, Jun'08, 45-5329).--T. M. Marini, University of Michigan
