This follow-up to Yergin’s fabulous book THE PRIZE: THE EPIC QUEST FOR OIL is every bit as good. This is a must-read for anyone interested in history, global politics, and what drives economic changes around the world. Robert Petkoff is a great choice for narrator. If you’re fearful that this book will be bogged down in statistics and mind-numbing genealogies, be assured that Yergin’s gifted storytelling and Petkoff’s masterful handling of it convey the material with a lightness and sophistication that draw one in. Petkoff's pacing and journalistic delivery are perfect. You do need to be prepared to rewind, however, when you can’t believe the jaw-dropping amounts of cash that trade hands and whom those hands belong to.
