Astonishing history of oil - the substance which drives the modern world economy. How it affects wars, economies, society, how nations rise and fall and fortunes are made and lost. A fundamental book for understanding a large portion of modern society.

Great history of the oil business. For the first time I understand the full impact of oil on modern society; and I understand the full impact of forces of modern capitalism - the power, the innovation and drive to succeed, the short-sightedness and the capacity for blind panic. Great read.

The subtitle is appropriate, the oil, money, and power prize is the epic story of the great game played by the leading powers in the acquisition of a carbon based energy source.
