One is the Loneliest Number, Now PUF is Two

PUF Books - New Regulatory Finance

One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do.

Two can be as bad as one,
It's the loneliest number since the number one…

'Cause one is the loneliest number that you'll ever do.

One is the loneliest number, whoa-oh, worse than two.


One, written by Harry Nilsson, recorded by Three Dog Night, was the first of the group’s many gold records. You’ll also remember their hits Celebrate, Joy to the World, Mama Told Me Not to Come (by Randy Newman), Easy to Be Hard (from the musical Hair), Try a Little Tenderness (by Otis Redding) and Eli’s Coming (by Laura Nyro).

One is indeed the loneliest number. We know that as well as anyone, publishing just one issue of Public Utilities Fortnightly per month for the last eleven years.

Two is not as lonely. Which is why, starting next month, we’ll be publishing two issues per month. As Three Dog Night also sang, celebrate, celebrate, dance to the music.

You’ve been receiving Public Utilities Fortnightly on the first of the month. And then you’ve whiled away the hours, for a whole month, until the next issue came.

PUR Books - Principals of Energy Regulation

Starting next month, you’ll receive Public Utilities Fortnightly on June first. And then, before you know it, you’ll receive PUF 2.0 on June twelfth.

PUF 2.0 is our new hip mag tailored for the digital world. You’ll catch our industry’s thought-leaders impacting the debate, reading PUF 2.0 on your phone, pad or PC.

Your lonely days are soon to end, with Public Utilities Fortnightly and PUF 2.0 as your constant companion.


The twice per month magazine for commentary, opinion and debate on utility regulation and policy, Public Utilities Fortnightly. “In PUF, Impact the Debate.”
