“What really fascinates me about [Morris’s] new tome is that I suspect it points to a symbolic turning point in economic mood If nothing else, his book is a timely reminder that economic optimism and pessimism have a habit of moving in cycles.”

“Mr. Morris adroitly explains the workings of what he calls ’the splendid technology that makes [shale] possible,’ [arguing] that this unconventional revolution could support more than four million jobs He also makes a compelling case that the U.S. is significantly under-investing in the infrastructure needed to support economic growth The contribution of ‘Comeback’ is to cogently lay out the bright economic consequences of the unconventional oil and gas revolution and the revival of manufacturing.”
“A persuasive, upbeat forecast of economic growth, starting now, for the United States. The author has a companionable voice, affable and easy, but with words chosen for maximum clarity Serious bureaucratic, technological and environmental issues, unpacked with facility, provide digestible food for thought.”
Daniel Gross, Newsweek Daily Beast
