Product description


"Exhaustively researched ... If you want to know why BP got itself into such a mess before and after Deepwater Horizon, Spills and Spin is an excellent and reliable account" (Sunday Times)

"Compelling ... Bergin's account stands out as the most thoughtful of the many recent accounts" (Daily Telegraph)

"Bergin, a highly regarded oil industry reporter for Reuters, has provided the best assessment yet of how the accident was rooted in the nature of BP ... There are lessons here about how to prevent a crisis - and handle one - that anyone in business would do well to take in" (FT Weekend)

"Here is the story not only of BP's darkest day, but of its 20-year transformation from takeover target to dynamic market leader ... For a robust read on the combustible history of big oil ... Bergin has all the raw material you require" (The Richmond Magazine)

"Reveals how the Macondo well disaster was rooted to the history and culture of BP" (The Times)

Book Description

A gripping and eye-opening account of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, and consequently a corporation in crisis.
