The Long Emergency

This one is a good primer. The author is a bit too alarmist and misanthropic for my taste, and many of his dire predictions have yet to come true, as he did not foresee the impact that new technology -- in this case hydraulic fracturing -- can have on peak oil.

$20 per Gallon

This one is a bit more upbeat, and the author considers peak oil to be more of an opportunity to improve the world, as apposed to an impending disaster.

Perhaps the truth lies someone in between these two views, which is why I recommend reading both books.
