This book is a very concise and thoughtful representation of the oil industries goals and profit driven motives. However, I found the brevity to be a disappointment rather than a boon. I really enjoy the energy realm, the discoveries, and the politics. This was just a scratch on the surface when I probably would've preferred something a little more in-depth. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in the oil industry without very much prior exposure to the area.
I love the idea of this book. However, the charts and figures do not fit the format of an audio presentation. If you want to read this book I would highly recommend getting the physical entity.
it was hard to listen of this book. Almost every page infuriates you because it seems like huge decisions that affect you and your money are made on gut feeling and the whims of the large investment bankers. what's perhaps more frightening is the government officials who actually make policy and decisions in this matter are good friends with all of the investment bankers. The story is mostly about the human aspect of the financial crisis and doesn't really go into theory realm -which is a nice change from most of the books trying to explain what happened.
The narrators of this book do a fantastic job of making the characters come to life. The different voices bring up the story and interaction better than a sole narrator. This book was my favorite of the Ender's game series. This book really has the ability to capture you and take you into the universe where Earth and humanity is not the central theme; even though, they are the central players.
I've read this book a few times and listening to it was just as enjoyable.
This book was surprisingly vague and uninformative. One Scientific American magazine about the multi-verse theory or a decent article about string theory would cover almost all the topics brought up in this book. Therefore, I would only recommend this book to people who have absolutely no prior exposure to the multi-verse theory.
