Reviews

'"There is no author whose books I look forward to more than Vaclav Smil" -- Bill Gates
'Smil's...ability to condense so much detail on a broad range of topics from science to economics in such a short work is as impressive as his command of the subject matter.' -- Jason P. Theriot - Energy and Environmental consultant
'In a fluent, easy style [Smil] delves into the world of oil from its discovery on the ground through to its effect on prices at the petrol pumps, and to its impact on future generations.' * The Good Book Guide *
'Everything most people - including most economists and investment advisors - should know about the physics and economics of oil.' * National Post *
