Fracking has vociferous critics and fervent defenders, but the debate between these camps has obscured the actual story: Fracking has become a fixture of the American landscape and the global economy. It has upended the business models of energy companies around the globe, and it has started to change geopolitics and global energy markets in profound ways. Gold tells the story of this once-obscure oilfield technology - a story with an incredible cast of tycoons and geologists, dreamers and drillers, speculators and skeptics, a story that answers a critical question of our time: Where will the energy come from to power our world - and what price will we have to pay for it?

Somehow the author manages to stay balanced
I know that being "balanced" on fracking is next to impossible, but he somehow manages it, and gives plenty of lovely info and anecdotes. Highly recommended.

Exceeded all expectations
I was expecting a jaded anti hydraulic fracturing story but what I found was a balanced, fascinating book. As an energy industry member I'm familiar with the technology but I really enjoyed how the business of oil was woven into the story.
