Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Spellbinding…irresistible…monumental…must be read to understand the first thing about the role of oil in modern history.”  New York Times
“[A] splendid and epic history of oil…the story is brilliantly told…with its remarkable cast of characters.”  Wall Street Journal
“Impassioned and riveting…only in the great epics of Homer will readers regularly run into a comparable string of larger-than-life swashbucklers and statesmen, heroes and villains.”  San Francisco Examiner
“A masterly narrative…The Prize portrays the interweaving of nation and corporate interests, the conflicts and stratagems, the miscalculations, the follies, and the ironies.”  James Schlesinger, former US Secretary of Defense and US Secretary of Energy
