You know you've arrived when they write the books. There are now at least eight volumes about or at least with multiple pages on PHEVs. So we made a new page at Calcars.org called "Books that Focus on or Discuss Plug-In Hybrids (PHEVs)" http://www.calcars.org/books.html
At the moment it includes eight books (including two that haven't yet been published), most recent first:
Apollo's Fire by Rep. Jay Inslee and Bracken Hendricks , Oct 2007
Freedom From Oil by David Sandalow, Sep 2007
Clean Tech Revolution by Ron Pernick and Clint Wilder, Jun 2007
Future Energy by Bill Paul, Feb 2007
Hell and High Water by Joseph Romm, Dec 2006
Plug-in Hybrids by Sherry Boschert, Dec 2006
Plan B 2.0 by Lester Brown, Jan 2006
War Footing by Frank J. Gaffney Jr., Nov 2005
We provide descriptions of each book and two ways to get them: first a link to ways to find an independent bookstore, and second, an easy way to find the selling price at Amazon.com and order or pre-order.
If you do it that way, CalCars will get a small referral fee for your entire Amazon order -- at no additional cost to you. (This isn't to say you shouldn't also consider giving us much-needed contributions, which you can do with a credit card or PayPal at http://www.calcars.org/sponsor.html.)
In the case of Sherry Boschert's book (if you're on this list and haven't read it, you've missed an entertaining and informative experience), we also provide links to order it from her or from Plug In America (they have a nifty package deals with the Who Killed the Electric Car DVD and autographed versions.
