isbn: 9780241957776* is an author i have read before with his book the prize, which is a large book on the oil industry and its beginnings. It was an interesting read then so this new book was picked up. It begins where isbn: 067171189x finishes. It’s first 250 pages are extremely boring with a potted history of the breakdown of the then soviet union. Hugo Chavez is also brought into the picture and although a moral to a tale i think other books (my blog) get central american politucs better.
So this is no one pass read it took me a week to read that far, n fact its boring. Eventually it gets round to Hubbert. The book breify does nuclear, and spends a few chapters on the beggining on climate science and this seems all over the place in regard to focus. Executive and little detail perhaps sums it up.
Mildly interesting 2/5 bananas
