Book Review: “The Prize” by Daniel Yergin


I have read a number of books on the oil industry while I have had time off. It seemed every book I read referred glowingly back to “The Prize” as a book of epic proportions. Having read this book I can say those reviews are justified.  Yergin takes one through the history and evolution of the oil industry.  Most importantly you will understand the relationship between the public and private sector.   I think anyone who reads this book will come away with a valuable and unique understanding why the oil industry plays such a vital role in our lives, beyond the obvious.  Beyond a great book I think Yergin has accomplished an important book, one that will live on for a long time.
