Fossil Fuels In The Arab World 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.
Alan-Dixon More than 1 year ago
This book puts one and one together and makes me realise the truth about the oil and gas global industries, and how it is affecting our lives. The text is informative and accessible to all. The analysis of unconventional resources is truly a revelation, which surprised me hugely and put everything in context to facilitate my understanding of the interlink between oil and politics, and the reasons behind the interest given to the Middle East throughout Western media outlets.

This is the first book I read about oil and certainly will not be my last. I'm not scientific minded, but was pleasantly surprised at the ease this book introduced the concepts of oil and gas industries to a non expert. This book is very interesting to read and is truly an eye-opener. I recommend this book to everyone!

Well written and very informative book. The author's style is engaging. By starting from the basics and building his argument gradually, the author ensures that readers can follow the analysis in a systematic manner. While the numbers can be overwhelming at first, they are presented clearly, and the figures and graphs integrate seamlessly with the text making for an interesting story. I always believed that without Arab oil life will come to a halt... how wrong I was! By presenting the facts, the author demonstrated that there is enough fossil fuel to last for generations contrary to peak oil theorists. The issue at stake is not the availability, but the economics, the technology and the politics. Putting alternative energy in perspective is rather fascinating and made me realise that fossil fuels age is here to stay.

Even if you have no interest in energy, get this book. There is an amazing chapter assessing data sources that will stir your curiosity and alert you to question the motives of the people who compile global data sources before believing anything you read.
