LEIGH FORBES: Books of all Sorts

The Hydro Boys: Pioneers of Renewable Energy

by Emma Wood.

Don’t read this expecting a balanced account.

I don’t mind disagreeing with Wood’s political views and devotion to the hydro projects, it’s just that she goes on and on about it. Despite having trained in mechanical engineering, and being interested in renewable energy, I found the book tiresome.

Some interesting accounts of day-to-day life for the workers, but that was about it for me.
