THE BOOM How Fracking Ignited the American Energy Revolution and Changed the World

by | Read by Patrick Lawlor

Contemporary Culture • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

WALL STREET JOURNAL reporter Russell Gold looks at fracking and how it has enabled more energy independence for the United States. Narrator Patrick Lawlor has quite the task in delivering the scientific, social, and political implications of fracking. Happily, his voice is easy to listen to, and he negotiates the jargon with ease. To put together this history of fracking, Gold interviewed thousands of people involved in each part of the story--from politicians and environmentalists to engineers and businessmen. When direct quotes are used, Lawlor sets them off from the general narration by slightly varying his tone and pitch. With his help, the book's message comes through as a story rather than a lecture or report. E.N. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2014]
