    "I am not sure I would consider this the best book on energy. There are voluminous books dealing with solar energy, battery sources, clean coal and others. Fracking is an economically and politically charged topic. Walter Brasch’s book Fracking America is a book dealing with his version of the negative impact and sourcing of Fracking. While many in the Country believe it is fully safe and bringing economic boom to certain areas. "

    "If you're of the same mindset as the author, you might really enjoy this book. I'm of the same mindset of the author for the most part. However, the author seems to hold a few strange beliefs that I don't understand. Weren't it for those things, this book would be better. I would recommend you to try out other books if you're interested in learning about the truth of the oil industry."
