The Prize recounts the panoramic history of oil -- and the struggle for wealth power that has always surrounded oil. This struggle has shaken the world economy, dictated the outcome of wars, and transformed the destiny of men and nations. The Prize is as much a history of the twentieth century as of the oil industry itself. The canvas of this history is enormous -- from the drilling of the first well in Pennsylvania through two great world wars to the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait and Operation Desert Storm. The cast extends from wildcatters and rogues to oil tycoons, and from Winston Churchill and Ibn Saud to George Bush and Saddam Hussein. The definitive work on the subject of oil and a major contribution to understanding our century, The Prize is a book of extraordinary breadth, riveting excitement -- and great importance.

A Wall Street Journal besteller and a USA Today Best Book of 2020 Named Energy Writer of the Year for The New Map by the American Energy Society “A master class on how the world works.” —NPR Pulitzer Prize-winning author and global energy expert, Daniel Yergin offers a revelatory new account of how energy revolutions, climate battles, and geopolitics are mapping our future The world is being shaken by the collision of energy, climate change, and the clashing power of nations in a time of global crisis. Out of this tumult is emerging a new map of energy and geopolitics. The “shale revolution” in oil and gas has transformed the American economy, ending the “era of shortage” but introducing a turbulent new era. Almost overnight, the United States has become the world's number one energy powerhouse. Yet concern about energy's role in climate change is challenging the global economy and way of life, accelerating a second energy revolution in the search for a low-carbon future. All of this has been made starker and more urgent by the coronavirus pandemic and the economic dark age that it has wrought. World politics is being upended, as a new cold war develops between the United States and China, and the rivalry grows more dangerous with Russia, which is pivoting east toward Beijing. Vladimir Putin and China's Xi Jinping are converging both on energy and on challenging American leadership, as China projects its power and influence in all directions. The South China Sea, claimed by China and the world's most critical trade route, could become the arena where the United States and China directly collide. The map of the Middle East, which was laid down after World War I, is being challenged by jihadists, revolutionary Iran, ethnic and religious clashes, and restive populations. But the region has also been shocked by the two recent oil price collapses--and by the very question of oil's future in the rest of this century. A master storyteller and global energy expert, Daniel Yergin takes the reader on an utterly riveting and timely journey across the world's new map. He illuminates the great energy and geopolitical questions in an era of rising political turbulence and points to the profound challenges that lie ahead.

A writer once said, “The heights attained by great men were not by sudden flight, but they, while others were sleeping, were toiling away in the night.” While some men were busy paying the price, others were busy sleeping and wasting away their precious time and opportunity. And the disparity is the heights attained by these men.

The book takes the reader through the story of a man who left the glamour of a boxing career and professional entertaining to follow a faith so deep you will be inspired to examine your own faith. John Rhame was a professional fighter and entertainer, but to me he will always be my pastor. As a young boy growing up in the church, his love for God and for people was a great example and influence in my life and future ministry. In reading this book, you will learn about what the heart of a pastor truly looks like, as that is what John Rhame was all about. Newell Smith, District Superintendent, Philadelphia District Church of the Nazarene I met Rev. Rhame only a few times as young Christian, but his love for God was always evident and impactful. His musical talent and the story of his life were rich and colorful and left a lasting impression on all who experienced it. His greatest contribution in my life came through the influence of his daughter Carolyn, the author of this book, who shared his legacy of love with me and many other young people that she served in our youth group. M. Kim Smith, District Superintendent, Iowa District Church of the Nazarene In life, we long for a hero to follow--someone who is bigger than life; But the real gift is when that hero humbly points us to Someone beyond ourselves; Someone who created us for greater purpose and meaning in life. This book reveals the story of what God can do in and through and with the life of a man who is fully surrendered to Him. Allan Greer, Senior Pastor, Parkway Place Baptist Church, Little Rock Not all stories have an end but every story has a beginning. This is a story of one mans beginning and decision which made an everlasting impact on generations. Joel Studdard, Student Ministry Pastor, Parkway Place Baptist Church, Little Rock
