On today's show, we talk to Daniel Yergin, one of the world's most influential thinkers about energy.

We talk about the future of energy in America, and about Yergin's new book, The Quest.

Yergin's previous book, The Prize, looked at the businessmen and politicians who fought to control oil around the world. The Quest looks beyond oil to alternative energy. The heroes are the engineers and scientists of the energy world — the geeks, in other words.
