4.0 out of 5 stars a great guide to the big questions, 25 Feb 2008
This review is from: Oil: Anatomy of Industry (Paperback)
Matthew Yeomans has divided his guide to oil into topics. He starts with a brief and informative history, and then goes on to explore car culture, human rights, the stock trading of oil, and a number of other key issues.

Topics are well chosen, and well researched. The background on the Bush family and on the Iraq war are very good. Less convincing is his optimistic championing of the hydrogen economy. The jury really is still out on whether or not hydrogen can ever really compare to the riches of cheap oil.

But, if you're looking for the key facts on the most important questions - why oil companies have a bad human rights record, why we go to war for oil, why prices fluctuate in the global market - this is a great summary.
