Crude & not very good, 9 Sep 2009
Oil is my favorite subject & so was looking forward to reading this book - I shouldn't have bothered, it is way too shallow and too lefty in it's opinions. I wanted a neutral history with no great opinions either way. I get the feeling Miss Shah has green motives at heart & the history is second to her real motives, criticizing the oil industry.
