Like listening to the audio? You can now get The Book of Pook as an Audiobook! (Over 13 hours of human narration - FAR superior to the machine generated TTS on this site!)

We also recommend checking out Pook's other book, "The Pook Manifesto" Audiobook (Over 15 hours of human narration). It is longer, contains more ideas, and is a lot of fun to listen to. If you like the Book of Pook, you will love this one.

If you are a doomster, please do not read this article:

“The world has only consumed about 18 percent of its conventional potential,” Jum’ah said, contending that should lay to rest fears that the world is in danger of being tapped out within a few decades.

Oh no! This means even if we don’t discover anything or are unable to tap into unconventional resources like the tar sands of Alberta, we will have over 130 years of resources! Alas, doomsters! What do you do when confronted with good news? Shall you hang yourselves on news of human wealth and plenty? It is the doomster who doubts the cornucopia of freedom and Human genius.
