Editorial Reviews

'...Mitchell...knows how to clearly set out complicated issues. Her arguments are well thought out, passionate and exciting...The publication of her book is very timely...'- Power UK (Platts)  '...Mitchell has done an excellent job of distilling the torrent of Government pronouncements and an immense amount of research into a meaningful and manageable volume.
