Just add water -- Ottis Grimes -- Everyone comes for the money -- Dominion over the rocks -- Wise County -- Ice doesn't freeze anymore -- Larry was the brake -- The rise of Aubrey McClendon -- The fall of Aubrey McClendon -- Celestia -- Blessings of the Pope -- Ghost Ridin' Grandpa -- Pandora's frack. Fracking has vociferous critics and fervent defenders, but the debate between these camps has obscured the actual story: Fracking has become a fixture of the American landscape and the global economy. It has upended the business models of energy companies around the globe, and it has started to change geopolitics and global energy markets in profound ways. Here the author tells the story of this once-obscure oilfield technology, a story with an incredible cast of tycoons and geologists, dreamers and drillers, speculators and skeptics, a story that answers a critical question of our time: Where will the energy come from to power our world, and what price will we have to pay for it?
