it was amazing

As someone who was born and raised in Alberta I was disgusted and ashamed of my home province as I read this book. While focusing on a particular case the book goes into enough detail about fracking and gas extraction in general to give a good background about this technology. The technology while dubious is far outweighed in the book by the wanton disregard by the petroleum industry and government. If anyone thought that government agencies were there for the people this book will change their mind. The book is well written with just enough technical details to help understand what is going on along with a good balance of the human drama of the people affected. It was an easy read and once I got going became harder and harder to put down.
