  • The Prize: The Epic Quest for Oil, Money & Power

    • ABRIDGED (2 hrs and 51 mins)

    The Prize recounts the panoramic history of oil, and the struggle for wealth and power that has always surrounded oil. This struggle has shaken the world economy, dictated the outcome of wars, and transformed the destiny of men and nations. The Prize is as much a history of the 20th-century as of the oil industry itself.

    There is so much in the book that listening to this abridged version seemed cheap and I finished it feeling very frustrated. I wouldn't hestitate to buy an unabridged version. Better there is no version than something as pathetic as this.

    In a scrap heap within an abandoned factory, the greatest invention in history lies dormant and unused. By what fatal error of judgment has its value gone unrecognized, its brilliant inventor punished rather than rewarded for his efforts? In defense of those greatest of human qualities that have made civilization possible, one man sets out to show what would happen to the world if all the heroes of innovation and industry went on strike.

    Does anyone else feel like we are living Atlas Shrugged right now! This is a highly relevant and applicable book to what we our seeing as a nation today. The rhetoric used by those who support the forced redistribution from those who produce to those who don't is almost verbatum today to how Ayn Rand invisioned it would happen over 60 years ago. I'm on my 4th "listen" in the last 2 years...yes...all roughly 64 hours of it!
