which this abundant form of energy could be utilised. The book was
written in an era when semiconductor technology was in its nascent

no formulae, but relying on analogies and models. It talks about
devices and mechanisms which belong to the future. For example a
solar powered satellite, which is the norm now. Lastly, it is about
coming of the solar age, which many of us are looking forward to
