Reviews for Why We Hate the Oil Companies

 

“Provocative….Insightful….Stimulating….See the alternative view of an insider!  Share his outrage.”
–Ram Charan, bestselling co-author of Execution and author of What the CEO Wants You to Know”

“As President of Shell Oil, [Hofmeister] addressed future energy and environmental security, challenging the industry to increase awareness of the energy issues. Now, [he] is reaching out to educate Americans about energy and solutions to ensure that preserving the environment is a top priority for public policy. John knows his ‘business’ and will help citizens and policy makers alike change the way we view our responsibility to the future.”
—Gretchen M. Bataille, President, University of North Texas

“[Hofmeister] takes a broad view of what we need to do to craft a successful energy strategy for our nation and has first hand knowledge of why our past policies have failed to prepare us for 21st Century challenges.”
—Robert S. Walker, Former Chairman of the Science Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives, Chairman of the Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technical Advisory Committee of the U.S. Department of Energy

“Entertaining and irreverent, skewering nicely all participants in energy supplies, demand and policies and is founded on a deep understanding of the economics, technologies and politics that drive the system. Fulfills a very important role in educating a broad readership in the critical issues of the national energy system and proposing pragmatic solutions with flair and candor.  For the sake of the nation, I very much hope it attracts the high level of attention that it deserves.”
–Christopher E. Ross, Vice President, CRA Charles River Associates and co-author of “Terra Incognita – A Navigation Aid for Energy Leaders” 

“I have been interested in energy issues since high school and have read extensively on energy-related subjects. This is, by far, the most coherent, thoughtful, practical and compelling book I have ever read on energy technology and policy issues.”
–Mike Critelli, chairman of Dossia Service Corporation, retired chairman and CEO, Pitney Bowes 

“Why We Hate the Oil Companies is riveting. I keep quoting it to people. Reading it is like having a wise uncle in the energy industry (and an environmental advocate to boot) who takes you aside and tells you, in straight language, exactly what’s wrong and right with the current American system. Candor, insight, and urgency at John Hofmeister’s level are so rare that, before this book arrived, I’d forgotten they existed.”
– Art Kleiner, editor-in-chief, strategy+business
