EV Book - The Zero-Carbon Car.

Has anyone got a copy of "The Zero-Carbon Car: Building the Car the Auto Industry Can't Get Right"?

I'd just like to know if it is worth getting. I found the authors web site and found it interesting. The zero-carbon biodiesel generator in the boot seems like an interesting idea.
