Rezensionen
Mr. Yergin is back with a sequel to The Prize. It is called The Quest: Energy, Security, and the Remaking of the Modern World, and, if anything, it s an even better book. It is searching, impartial and alarmingly up to date The Quest will be necessary reading for C.E.O. s, conservationists, lawmakers, generals, spies, tech geeks, thriller writers, ambitious terrorists and many others The Quest is encyclopedic in its ambitions; it resists easy synopsis. THE NEW YORK TIMES (Dwight Garner)

A sprawling story richly textured with original material, quirky details and amusing anecdotes... The tale is generously sprinkled with facts debunking common misperceptions, and Mr. Yergin sagely analyzes how well the energy industry really works. THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

It is a cause for celebration that Yergin has returned with his perspective on a very different landscape [I]t is impossible to think of a better introduction to the essentials of energy in the 21st century.In Yergin s lucid, easy prose, the 800 pages flow freely The Quest is the definitive guide to how we got here. THE FINANCIAL TIMES

An important book a valuable primer on the basic issues that define energy today. Yergin is careful in his analysis and never polemical Despite that, The Quest makes it clear that energy policy is not on the right course anywhere in the world and that everyone on the left and the right, in the developed and the developing world need to rethink strongly held positions. THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW (Fareed Zakaria)

  Mr Yergin s previous book, The Prize, a history of the global oil industry, had the advantage of an epic tale and wondrous timing The Quest, as its more open-ended title suggests, is a broader and more ambitious endeavour The Quest is a masterly piece of work and, as a comprehensive guide to the world s great energy needs and dilemmas, it will be hard to beat. THE ECONOMIST

The Quest is a book a tour de force, really that evaluates the alternatives to oil so broadly and deeply that the physical tome could double as a doorstop It is best read slowly, perhaps one chapter per day maximum, if the goal is to actually absorb the rich detail and sometimes complicated workings described by Yergin.
