Very informative and easy to read,
This review is from: Crude: The Story of Oil (Paperback)
There's a lot of "global issue" books out there that get bogged down in too much detail to the point that they are too boring to read. Sonia Shah manages to present all the facts about oil (from its birth under the sea to its current use in society) clearly and in a very easy to read manner.
This book is also very informative with loads of interesting facts and thought provoking arguments. If you want a fairly detailed history about the emergence of oil and the issues of our dependence on oil in the future then this is the book for you.
