Publisher Description

This long-awaited successor to Daniel Yergin’s Pulitzer Prize-winning The Prize provides an essential, overarching narrative of global energy, the principal engine of geopolitical and economic change

A master storyteller as well as a leading energy expert, Daniel Yergin continues the riveting story begun in his Pulitzer Prize–winning book, The Prize. In The Quest, Yergin shows us how energy is an engine of global political and economic change and conflict, in a story that spans the energies on which our civilization has been built and the new energies that are competing to replace them.

The Quest tells the inside stories, tackles the tough questions, and reveals surprising  insights about coal, electricity, and natural gas. He explains how climate change became a great issue and leads readers through the rebirth of renewable energies, energy independence, and the return of the electric car. Epic in scope and never more timely, The Quest vividly reveals the decisions, technologies, and individuals that are shaping our future.

An Important History of the quest for oil

Yergin's excellent history explains many turning points in history including the fall of the USSR, the constant failure of US energy regulations and even some of the major price fluctuations of gas at the pump. His style is easy to read and his coverage is comprehensive. A must for those who want to understand the current international political situation.

Where are the pictures

The paper book has lots of great pictures. The ebook does not. I am very disappointed.
