Gregory Zuckerman da os Frackers documents the lives of energy tycoons, intertwining the accounts of their personal and professional losses and gains in a dramatic narrative. Each of these men greatly impacted the economical and environmental spheres of American history. From the introduction of fracking, or hydraulic fracturing, which is a technique of pumping gallons of various liquid substances, including water, into shale rocks to create fissures for gas to escape – to horizontal drilling, a method that involves drilling narrow strips of rock that are loaded with oil beneath the ground – Zuckerman shows the cunning and innovation of the leading men in the industry. os Frackers detalha a transformação dos Estados Unidos a partir de um país dependente das importações de estrangeiros para sua indústria de energia para o maior produtor mundial de gás natural.

os Frackers is an excellent introduction to the behind-the-scenes of the gas and oil industries. Zuckerman provides detailed explanations of key terms and also delves into the scientific and historical backgrounds of the recent, revolutionary energy methods and movements. Zuckerman’s choice of a dramatic narrative structure should be applauded, as it keeps the book from just being a regurgitation of facts and numbers – and instead, makes it a work that is both compelling and informative.

However, despite the many positives to Zuckerman’s work, there are drawbacks. In fact, Zuckerman’s colloquial language often competes with the economical and environmental jargon of the book. Zuckerman’s narrative voice – the very aspect that sets the book apart from the rest and appeals to a wider audience – is, at times, as much of a negative factor as it is a positive one. Furthermore, there are times when the book is redundant, especially when defining key words (such as fracking and horizontal drilling). While this can help cement ideas and re-emphasize them in various ways, it may also appear as demeaning or unnecessary.

No geral, os Frackers is a recommended read, especially for those looking for an introduction to the business and economical sides of the major energy industries. Zuckerman’s book delves into both the advantages and drawbacks of fracking. Although the author does not explicitly choose a side, he does suggest that the negative aspects of fracking are “overstated” and that an increase in energy production has numerous benefits, including mass employment, economic growth, and a decreased trade deficit. os Frackers é uma leitura global positiva, aquele que subverte o outlook típico em economia e negócios americanos e em vez disso, concentra-se em seis homens, que provaram que mesmo quando tudo parece fútil, existem infinitas possibilidades de expansão e revolução.
