Overview

Game Changer is the story of one man’s fifty-year journey doing battle with the conventional wisdom and in the process helping to restore America as an energy superpower.

A day doesn’t go by without energy in the headlines. From banning gas stoves to prices at the pump to threats to the world’s energy supplies, energy is front and center.

Most of what we are hearing is high emotion, low-fact misinformation offered by folks who have no clue what they are talking about.

Game Changer is the story of Harold Hamm and his fifty-year journey battling conventional wisdom and, in the process, helping restore America as an energy superpower. How did he do it? With horizontal drilling. What Hamm did was game changing—for his country and the world.

In Game Changer, Hamm explains:
  • Why American Energy Independence is the most important policy to guarantee our long-term economic and national security.
  • How the conversion to natural gas for electricity production in the US has led to the largest declines in emissions in the industrialized world.
  • Why much of the energy narrative is distorted by money, politics, activism, and virtue-signaling.
  • Why the so-called “energy crisis” in America is self-inflicted.

We’ve been relentlessly told that oil and natural gas is the enemy, that humanity’s very existence depends on its extinction. Yet our whole world—your world—runs on it.

Game Changer invites you to learn the real story, the story we all need to hear, told through the common-sense eyes of the man who has led what he calls the American Energy Renaissance. If you care about your future, and the future of your kids and grandkids, read this book.

About the Author

If you don’t know Harold Hamm, you should. He and the technology he pioneered might be the biggest game changer of all. We’ve all heard about Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and others whose innovations have changed our world. But arguably none of it could have happened had not Harold brought billions of barrels of American oil and gas online through mastering horizontal drilling. It’s what he likes to call the American Energy Renaissance. In a matter of a few decades, Harold went about proving the conventional wisdom wrong. America was not running out of oil and gas. In fact, just the opposite was true. America was and is an energy superpower, ensuring abundant, affordable, and reliable energy for decades to come.

The thirteenth child of an Oklahoma sharecropper, he processed what all great American entrepreneurs have—a sense of destiny and a desire to change the world for the better. He went from owning a single mud truck purchased with borrowed money to a man who advised presidents on America’s energy resources and policies.

When he declared America could be energy independent over a decade ago, nearly all said it was impossible. Yet in 2019, we were. He championed the end of the export ban on American Oil and Gas which led to a trillion-dollar swing annually to the good for our economy and American families. The company he founded fifty-six years ago, Continental Resources, now operates in four of America’s premier basins and is one of the largest producers of oil and gas in the United States. Harold recently took the company private because he loves independence.

Harold has given generously to universities across America, including millions to the University of Oklahoma’s Harold Hamm Diabetes Center. He and Continental gave $50 million to establish the Hamm Institute of American Energy in partnership with Oklahoma State University with the goal of solving the world’s greatest energy challenges.
