Reviewed in the United States on February 3, 2014
I bought this book after reading a number of reviews on Amazon. I have not read the whole book so this might be a little bit premature, but so far I very much enjoy this book. Contrary to some of the reviewers I like the fact that it is not jam packed with loads of information regarding the process of fracturing. Zuckerman had put a face on one of the most important events of my life and I am 70 years of age. As he stated in the book to think that as few years ago as 2006 that we were talking about energy shortages in this country, and now we are now talking about possible energy independence as early as 2020 is unbelievable. The so called big boys i.e. Exxon's, Chevron's, etc. along with the energy "experts" collectively got this wrong versus the George Mitchell's and the other small guys who in fact made this possible. American ingenuity and hard work has made this possible and is alive and well. If only we can get the Federal government out of the way. Everything can be made better and so will fracturing. If you want to find out about some 21st century pioneers than this is a good book to read..
