David E. Newton, EdD, has been a freelance writer of nonfiction books and ancillary materials for young adults for nearly 55 years.Review:
"Two particular strengths are the section on facts and figures and the extensive annotated bibliography of outside resources. Suitable for young adult and nonspecialist researchers, this concise, single-volume resource would be a good addition to high school and undergraduate libraries or public libraries where readers may be interested in the constantly developing topic of solar power." - Booklist
