The authors of this publication, which addressing one of the most terrible and large-scale technological catastrophes in the whole history of the offshore industry, have used the true story of the Gulf of Mexico disaster as the background, based on which they have discussed the relationships of the energy-complexity spiral to what had happened. Patzek and Tainter touched on so many interesting matters, and it really makes sense to spend some time on reading this book because it will let the reader have some better and more thorough understanding of the problem.
The content of the present publication has been found very important for all participants of the industry and something that everyone directly or indirectly concerned with the future of the oil and gas industry should be aware of. The authors have widely appreciated the links existing thee between energy and consumption, and also between energy and the environment; however, note that they all are only one part of the story.
In short, we may say that this is a really fascinating reading telling so much of interesting facts and opening the readers eyes to many things that were not paid due attention before. An excellent and must-have one.
