5.0 out of 5 stars Thrilling expose, 22 Jun. 2012
This review is from: Vultures' Picnic (Paperback)
The author adopts a style more akin to that of a rock journalist than an investigative one, but once you get used to this you are led on a bewildering and exciting ride through the higher echelons of big business in general and the oil business in particular. I don't know how he does it but it is almost as if the author is talking to you rather than you reading the text and what he has to say is very hard hitting indeed. My overall feeling though is that although written with the best intentions I believe the author almost believes himself to be spitting in the wind (he wouldn't say "spitting" mind) as the big boys have got the rest of the world screwed down and on the verge of being totally screwed up. This is not a book that is going to make you sleep any easier in your bed but if it does anything to highlight the malpractices that are common currency in the oil industry and get something, anything done about them then he has done us all a great service. Please read this book.
