About this book

This book delves into the worst oil well accident in US history, which killed eleven men and led to the current environmental and economic catastrophe on the Gulf Coast.

With thirty years in oil and gas operations, insider Bob Cavnar provides a candid, engaging, and chilling look at the industry, its resistance to regulation, and the government concessions that are now putting people and the coastlines in jeopardy. He brings the industry's technology and people to life, delivering the untold story of the blowout, response, and decisions made by BP, Transocean, and the US government. Ultimately, Cavnar charts a crucial course for how to avoid these disasters in the future.
