The Frackers by Gregory Zuckerman, bestselling author of The Greatest Trade Ever, tells the untold story of the tycoons behind the US fracking controversy. Things looked grim for American energy in 2006. Oil production was in steep decline and natural gas was hard to find. The Iraq War threatened the nations already tenuous relations with the Middle East. China was rapidly industrializing and competing for resources. Major oil companies had just about given up on new discoveries on US soil, and a new energy crisis loomed. But a handful of men believed everything was about to change. By experimenting with hydraulic fracturing through extremely dense shale - a process now known as fracking - these wildcatters started a revolution. In just a few years, they solved Americas dependence on imported energy, triggered a global environmental controversy - and made and lost astonishing fortunes. The frackers have already transformed the eco - nomic, environmental, and geopolitical course of history, and like the Rockefellers and the Gettys before them, theyre using their wealth and power to influence politics, education, entertainment, sports, and many other fields.
