The Ethanol Papers is an extensive and detailed work of non-fiction which was penned by author Marc J Rauch. Subtitled as ‘The Whole Story on Ethanol Fuel’, this informative and straight-talking narrative takes its readers through an economic, performance-related and environmental debate which has raged on for decades all around the world: the use of ethanol versus gasoline for fuel. Though it is written in a jargon-free style to make it accessible to others, the complexities of the issue are fully considered through an enormous collection of writings on topics ranging from the power and hypocrisy of the major oil companies to satirical works that take on a myth-busting attitude.

Accompanied by numerous diagrams, photographs, quotes and content taken from various real-world sources, this epic exploration of the ethanol debate and its pros and cons is well worth a read for any theorist who enjoys getting to the real motivations behind seemingly innocuous arguments. Author Marc J Rauch writes with succinct use of detail so as not to overwhelm readers all at once, separating different instances, media mentions, governmental interferences and the like into different chapters to give a holistic view of the argument from all angles. His work is thorough and supremely well organized, with plenty of reference material and some very amusing satirical attitudes which add to the overall readability of the piece. Overall, The Ethanol Papers is by far the most conclusive and well thought out report on the debate that exists and is, therefore, essential reading for interested readers.

Finally, real facts…myth busters...true stories and more about ethanol fuels. All from an individual whose passion for cars is second only to his sincere exploration for America’s independence from foreign oil.
Marc exceeds in his search for truths about clean ethanol fuels that our nation could have chosen in the early days of Henry Ford. Perhaps this book will enlighten those who previously were caught up in myths and water cooler chat.

Marc J. Rauch’s hard-hitting accomplishment, The Ethanol Papers, delivers a brash and abrasive debunking of the myths and manipulation that brought the world to oil addiction.
