  • A peek on Oil & Gas Industry

    On the upside, the book possesses the power to change your views about Oil & Gas industry radically. And will help you to understand and analyse news and reports (Oil & Gas) coming into the market in a different angle. The money paid for the book is thus effectively justified. The book is thus a recommended read for anyone who is interested in the Oil & Gas Industry and its escapades. It is also recommended for management professionals (particularly Oil & Gas related industries), share market professionals (mainly US), political & economical analysts, reporters and those who want to enter Oil & Gas related jobs. On the downside, there are few things. 1) The title of the book gives the ambiguity that, the book is about the villainous nature of practices followed by Exxon Mobil management. However, it is seen that the author knowingly or unknowingly glorifying the actions taken by the company. And this is done to such an extent that, for a pro- Oil & Gas industry reader, many practices by the Exxon Mobil management will be felt as classic text book examples on dealing business situations. 2) The book is not a pleasant read. While some chapters make us to read in a single stretch, majority of chapters are sometimes felt dragging (may be the author was trying to show his professional capacity in researching the facts). 3) Sometimes it is felt that instead of the current title, the author should have given the title as “Before and after Lee Raymond in Exxon Mobil” 4) The book lacks photographs of major characters. I am giving the rating as 3/5 as there is no provision to give 3.5/5.

  • A Company Man's Book

    Not so much about American power as an insider's guide to the workings this giant corporation. It's not that it lacks interest, but that the interest is very much skewed towards the "company man" rather than the general reader. Once you get the gist of corporate thinking in any one of the various drilling projects here described which begin with the Exxon Valdez incident, nothing changes very much throughout the whole book. Perhaps if I were an employee I might have found it more interesting
