The Frackers

The Outrageous Inside Story of the New Energy Revolution




The riveting, untold story of the tycoons behind the fracking controversy

In 2006 the US was running out of energy. From running a city to turning on a lightbulb, the entire country depended on dwindling energy sources tied up in international politics. Then came the Frackers.

Ambitious and headstrong, these few pioneers - some without degrees or backgrounds in geology - risked their livelihoods in the stubborn search under the soil. What they found transformed the nation, and the world.

With exclusive access, award-winningreporter Gregory Zuckerman chronicles their untold story for the first time and explores just how dangerous fracking really is.
