Wall Street Journal energy reporter Russell Gold was a Pulitzer Prize finalist and Gerald Loeb Award winner for his coverage of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill and its aftermath. His articles on fracking and shale gas were some of the first to explore the issues, personalities, and technologies involved in this once-obscure energy source. In The Boom, “an insider’s guide to the most controversial energy-production technique in the United States" (Kirkus), Gold provides a sober and meticulously researched look at fracking and its place in the American landscape and in the global economy.
