“[Bass] knows how to write; and like his oil witchery, this gift is extravagant and natural.”—Time
In lean, considered prose, Bass’s essays and notes offer fascinating insights into the oil industry while skillfully painting the picture of a young man on the verge of adulthood. Oil Notes successfully conveys the excitement of possibility—a stimulating career, the pursuit of a wonderful woman, the beautiful mystery of the earth—that so addresses and captivates us in our own lives.
Bass provides a new introduction for this edition reflecting how much—and how little—has changed since his youth in the oil industry.
Rick Bass's beautiful, exuberant work about oil exploration digs deep into the human experience and achieves a remarkable, subterranean examination of the self.

'Oil Notes' is book that I chose to read for my english class. I definately was not too excited coming into the assignment but once I started reading 'Oil Notes' I was greatly intrigued by the contents of the book. It is a book that is almost like a journal or just a text that has been able to capture all of a person's thoughts. It is and enjoyable and entertaining book. I would recommend it to anyone that I know.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
