Sentinel Work on Energy

by MarkT on Jan 12, 2012

Dan Yergin has continued his Pulitzer-quality work with "The Quest." This book is well written, and chronicles the continuing story of energy in the modern world. Some will find this work more opinionated than "The Prize," and therefore more controversial. Don't begin this book unless you plan to read it to the end; if you find 700-plus pages a chore, you may wish to find more concise books on the subject. His historic perspectives are insightful. Hopefully, his views on the future of energy are more accurate than many of the predictions made by his company, CERA, which have not enjoyed a very good track record concerning oil.
