This is one of my favorite books to read. This abriged version is a disaster. They cut out all the interesting history of the oil companies and only covered the politics of mid 20th century oil. What happened to the Colonel, Rockefeller, the 7 sisters? This was awful. If you only want the oil politics of 1950 to 1990 then this is fine. For me...yuk!

Silly me - I didn't see the teeny tiny type that said "Abridged." That's a waste of a download. I've previously listened to this on cassette tape while driving from Seattle to NYC -- yes, that's how long this fantastic omnibus of information took to listen to. Very disappointed to see an audio file only at ~3 hours long....blech.
Audible has some work to do.

The book is an excellent summary of the impact of oil on geopolitics and global economics. Succinctly written and facts are well interpreted and presented.
Given the richness of content I found the book narrated a notch too fast to take in all information at once.
However, I will also buy the book itself as a valuable reference.
