In his trademark style of gracefully examining the interplay between political and environmental concerns, The Well From Hell offers an engaging, informative, and important context for BP’s tragedy in the Gulf of Mexico, placing the company’s short-cuts and lack of preparedness in the larger and colorful story of BP’s corporate culture.
