“A lively, exciting, and definitely thought-provoking book.” —Booklist
Things looked grim for American energy in 2006, but a handful of wildcatters were determined to tap massive deposits of oil and gas that giants like Exxon and Chevron had ignored. They risked everything on a new process called fracking. Within a few years, they solved America’s dependence on imported energy, triggered a global environmental controversy, and made and lost astonishing fortunes.
No one understands the frackers—their ambitions, personalities, and foibles—better than Wall Street Journal reporter Gregory Zuckerman. His exclusive access drives this dramatic narrative, which stretches from North Dakota to Texas to Wall Street.
Fascinating look at an industry that has/will transform the world. It’s no less important than that. An “only in America” story.
Yes some of these "Frackers" became Billionaires but underlying is how important these risk tasking pioneers have changed America and the world for the Far Better!!!!! This book is an amazing insight into some brilliant Minds of the big dreamers....
The Frackers ... Highly Recommended
Great summary of who led the technology charge in the US...! A must read for industry novices and professionals!
