'The Frackers' is the riveting, untold story of the tycoons behind the fracking controversy, from Gregory Zuckerman, the bestselling author of The Greatest Trade Ever. "Remarkable ...A great read, whether you are pro-fracking or against it". (Matthew Bishop, The Economist). "Smart, colourful, gripping". (Financial Times). "Excellent, highly readable". (The Times). In 2006 the US was running out of energy. From running a city to turning on a lightbulb, the entire country depended on dwindling energy sources tied up in international politics. Then came the Frackers. Ambitious and headstrong, these few pioneers - some without degrees or backgrounds in geology - risked their livelihoods in the stubborn search under the soil. What they found transformed the nation, and the world. They tapped massive energy deposits that had always been overlooked. They solved America's dependence on imported energy and reshuffled international power. They triggered seismic environmental controversy and unleashed furious opposition. They made and lost astonishing fortunes. With exclusive access, award-winning Wall Street Journal reporter Gregory Zuckerman chronicles their untold story for the first time. From the barren fields of North Dakota to pickup trucks in Texas and boardrooms on Wall Street, The Frackers follows the men who spearheaded one of the greatest energy revolutions in history, and explores just how dangerous fracking really is.
