Here is the book that exposes the true status of the world's energy supplies, revealing both the scale of the disaster looming over our planet, and the action each and every one of us must take ? right now ? to stand a chance of averting it. No previous book on the oil trade has had such unprecedented access to the boardrooms of the mightiest oil companies, or such insider knowledge of geology and engineering. And none has made such a persuasive and inspiringcall for immediate individual action.

...a valuable contribution to the library of what is essentially subversive literature Jeremy Leggett is a fine writer. -- Colin Tudge, The Guardian
A fast-moving, easily readable polemic whose unashamed populism does not obscure the weight of its argument. -- The Sunday Times
‚ His personal insights are fascinating‚ ¶ the writing is always clear and conveys complicated but important technicalities in very accessible terms.‚ -- Daily Mail, David Shukman, BBC Science and Environment News correspondent
'I hope this book will not be an obituary for the human species. But the denial and double-think it exposes suggest that, unless we change pretty smartly, we can expect to be overtaken by the catastrophes Leggett documents. His book demands to be read.' - George Monbiot
