Product Details


“Zuckerman’s fast-paced, densely interesting The Frackers is the first book to tell the stories of the obstinate, ravenous, methodical, sometimes rascally oil executives of the recent boom. By focusing on people instead of trends, it gets to the heart of why the United States is once again the largest supplier of oil and gas in the world.”—The New Republic

“Told with care and precision and a deep understanding of finance and corporate politics as well as oil and geology.”— Bryan Burrough, The New York Times

“Fans of the lively, character-driven nonfiction of writers like Kurt Eichenwald and Ben Mezrich should welcome this book with open arms . . . A lively, exciting, and definitely thought-provoking book”


“A fascinating study of American entrepreneurial culture and the modern robber barons who succeeded in creating an energy revolution.”—Kirkus

“Lovers of business and capitalism will appreciate The Frackers, … Zuckerman has done valuable and timely reporting on the men and independent companies that created the shale boom.”—Associated Press
