When I clicked 'I'm finished' on the the Goodreads status bar, I smirked to myself at the recollection of Daniel Plainview's final line in 'There Will be Blood.' Unfortunately, that's about as good as it got with this book.

Don't read this book if you're interested in the early 20th century oil rush. You'll find something better. However, If you're interested in the pre-WWII communist/socialist movements in the US, then you may find what you're looking for here.

Don't read this book because you love the film, There Will Be Blood. I've already made that mistake for you. Read something fun.
