About the Book (Excerpts & Info)
This morning you balanced your checkbook with an automatic withdrawal of over $400 for gas and electric for your 4,000 square-foot home. On your way to the airport you filled up your SUV for over $70. You are spending a lot more than you spent last year for your morning cornflakes, the rib-eye steak you had last night and the corn squeezins from the local moonshiner.
You're mad as hell and want to know what's going on. Are you being gouged? Do the energy companies really earn obscene profits? What's with a new energy policy coming out of Congress every year?
Confessions of an Energy Price Forecaster gives you answers. But more importantly it helps you understand where these prices are going. After all, you already paid for today's energy. It is really all about being able to plan for the future.
Deftly constructed at 180 pages, Confessions of an Energy Price Forecaster: A 12-Step Program to Enlightenment is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Energy category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Confessions of an Energy Price Forecaster meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $17.95.

About the Author
John Tobin is the Executive Director of the Energy Literacy Project, Inc.

He has been a Distinguished Lecturer for the International Society of Petroleum Engineers, speaking on public energy education and policy issues.

As a consultant, he specializes in explaining uncertainty and probabilistic energy price forecasts and in aiding the corporate culture in accepting concepts that run counter to conventional wisdom.
His more than 40 years of experience include positions with ARCO, Scientific Software Corp., Martin Marietta and Eastman Kodak. With BS and MS degrees from the University of Rochester in Mechanical and Aerospace Sciences, he is a recovering engineer, believing himself to be qualified as an energy economist in that he has no academic biases to distort his views.
