Liberty Posted April 27, 2014 Share Posted April 27, 2014 [amazonsearch]The Prize: The Epic Quest for Oil, Money, and Power[/amazonsearch] For those interested in the history of the oil industry (from the 1850s onward). I'm just a few hundred pages in, but so far it's excellent and I feel it deserves the Pulitzer that it received. Really interesting details about the early drillers, the first big gusher, how Standard Oil, Royal Dutch, Russian operations, the first pipelines and tankers, etc. What I find most fascinating is the various strategies and tactics used by the big players to get around one another and get an edge.
