An interesting book on Shell the oil giant. A little Biased towards them, but worth having on the bookshelf

Format: Hardcover
As an employee of Shell, I found the book fascinating and extremely useful in explaining the corporate culture and I therefore recommend it to fellow staff. It certainly gives a first-rate perspectve on the history of the oil industry and other companies. However, I would not have expected it to be of huge interest to people outside the industry.
Puzzlingly, since putting it on my bookshelf at home, I have found various friends and family picking it up, browsing and then borrowing it, so that I occasionally have to hound them to get it back. Obviously it must be of more interest than I realised; it is certainly very well-written.

Enjoyable book, if you're looking to read about how the big oil companies got to where they are. A must book for oil historians.
