    The Prize: The Epic Quest for Oil, Money & Power

    Trade paperback, Free Press
    2008

    "The Prize" recounts the panoramic history of oil - and the struggle for wealth and power that has always surrounded oil. This struggle has shaken the world economy, dictated the outcome of wars, and transformed the destiny of men and nations. "The Prize" is as much a history of the twentieth century as of the oil industry itself. The canvas of history is enormous - from the drilling of the first well in Pennsylvania through two great world wars to the Iraqui invastion of Kuwait and Operation Desert Storm.

Very Good and Informative

by Michael R on Jul 1, 2010

A great history of Oil and how it affects our entire life and lifestyle. Very highly recommended to those who are exceptionally curious about the history of Oil and how intertwined is into so much of our 'modern' history (read that as the last 150 years and especially the last 75 years). An excellent ... More

YERGIN'S EPIC BOOK ON AN EPIC SUBJECT

by Wigert on Nov 29, 2007

Without a real understanding of global oil, it's said, it is next to impossible to understand the world we live in. Because for the past century, it's been oil even more than money that's made our world go round. And national incomes in many developed countries to go through the roof. Nobody knows ... More

HISTORICAL EVENTFUL BOOK

by MyBuddyL53 on Sep 27, 2007

I had no idea about the history and the development of oil, because I had lived most of my life in a rural farming area, and there were no oil refineries or oil fields around. This book was both educational and informative. A GREAT MUST READ BOOK! More
