Book review: The end of oil by Paul Roberts

The End of Oil: On the Edge of a Perilous New World
I like to think that I have a clue about global politics. I was shocked at how little I knew about global oil trade and its affect on world politics.The end of Oil is a must read for anybody that has an interest in these types of large issues that push and pull on world economics and politics.

There is also a fair amount of coverage on the environmental impacts of oil. These sections were fairly straight forward. No real surprises in the direct and indirect impact of oil on the environment but there was good overall coverage of the topic.

I definitely recommend this book. It is a good read and an important subject.
