Oil is the lifeblood of the modern world. Without it, there would be no planes, no plastic, no exotic produce, and a global political landscape few would recognise. Humanity's dependence upon oil looks set to continue for decades to come, but what is it? Fully updated and packed with fascinating facts to fuel dinner party debate, Professor Vaclav Smil's Oil: A Beginner's Guide explains all matters related to the `black stuff', from its discovery in the earth right through to the controversy that surrounds it today.

'"There is no author whose books I look forward to more than Vaclav Smil" -- Bill Gates 'Smil's...ability to condense so much detail on a broad range of topics from science to economics in such a short work is as impressive as his command of the subject matter.' -- Jason P. Theriot - Energy and Environmental consultant 'In a fluent, easy style [Smil] delves into the world of oil from its discovery on the ground through to its effect on prices at the petrol pumps, and to its impact on future generations.' * The Good Book Guide * 'Everything most people - including most economists and investment advisors - should know about the physics and economics of oil.' * National Post * 'A well-balanced, concise, and readable synthesis of oil-related facts and history.' * Technology and Culture *
