Solar Eclipse Special Book and 2 Stickers


“Verities” tackles the complex topic of renewable energy with such enthusiasm and charisma even the most science-averse among us will be tempted to delve a little deeper into where we’ve been and where we are going. Catalytic converters. Lithium batteries. Whale blubber. These are not words that typically pique my interest, but Flentge’ s knack for storytelling has recruited me to his cause and reinforced the responsibility we all have to become conscientious consumers.

 “Verities of an Electric Mule” is an entertaining book and fills in some historic gaps in the highly disruptive EV revolution. The book takes readers on a journey through time, exploring various modes of transportation and how they have evolved. To know where we’re going you need to know where we’ve been, and Flentge’s book gets the reader there. One of the most interesting aspects of the book is Flentge’s personal experience working for EVTV in Cape Girardeau, MO. He shares stories from his time at EVTV, which adds a unique perspective to the book. This personal touch allows readers to connect with the author and better understand his passion for electric cars.  The book is well-written and informative, offering readers a wealth of knowledge about electric cars and their role in shaping the future of transportation. Flentge’s writing style is engaging and easy to read, making it accessible to readers of all backgrounds and interests.                        Review by Parker Ragain Transportation Safety

As a viewer and fan of the legendary EV pioneer Jack Rickard, and his original Friday show. EVTV is truly a work of EV history.

In his book Richard Flentge, a Jack Rickard protégé and co-host weaves together the early days of reporting on Tesla and shop stories creating a magical show of EV technology.

The book is both entertaining and informative. Jack Rickard’s influence on this book is undeniable, and Flentge pays tribute to his mentor in a way that is heartfelt and authentic throughout. He truly knew the man.

This book is also a valuable reference manual for anyone interested in transportation history and future of the “battery on wheels”.

With deep technical expertise and journalistic skills, he sheds light on the historic gaps in the evolution of electric vehicles and their lithium battery, then points the reader to the future way to go— All electric!

Glad to see it had a lighter side with shop stories, cats, and Tesla jokes, and of course no EV book would be   complete without Elon Musk quotes, what fun!

Whether you’re an EV enthusiast or just curious about this exciting new technology, Verities of an Electric Mule is must-read. So buckle up and get ready for an electrifying journey through the world of electric vehicles!
