The Frackers is an excellent, non-technical history of the shale oil and gas boom that revolutionized the American energy industry. Refinements to the technology known as hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, unlocked vast new deposits of oil and gas, and sent the prices of both key commodities tumbling. Millions of American consumers have reaped the benefits at the gas pump and on their utility bills. Zuckerman tells this story through a series of profiles of the entrepreneurs, wildcatters and financiers who made it possible. For anyone interested in understanding how the shale energy revolution came to pass, and why it’s here to stay, The Frackers is an invaluable narrative.
