IN DEEP WATER The Anatomy of Disaster, the Fate of the Gulf, and How to End Our Oil Addiction

by | Read by Tom Weiner

Contemporary Culture • 4.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

At the book’s writing, the infamous BP well at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico had only just been sealed. Establishing responsibility will go on for years, but the authors want Americans to know the price for petroleum goes far beyond money. Damage to wildlife, the seafood business, and tourism demonstrates the monumental risk we take to harvest fossil fuels and continue our dependence on them. The cozy relationship between oil industry executives and federal regulators impaired oversight. Narrator Tom Weiner utilizes his trademark brisk pace, sometimes through a forest of statistics. His sonorous voice never stumbles or mumbles, making us imagine we really understand the difference between millions, billions, and trillions. Weiner enhances the quality of the audio experience with his preternatural resonance. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2010]
