Juhasz "reminds us that those who don't learn the lessons of history are fated to repeat its mistakes." - USA Today

A "timely, blistering critique... white-hot... Explosive fuel for the raging debate on oil prices."  - Kirkus Reviews

"...part homage to 150 years of anti-monopoly muckraking and trust-busting and part signpost to where the leading edge of the environmental and social activist movements are headed." - The Toronto Star

"...a brave, groundbreaking case study.... A good first step toward true energy independence is to read this insightful book." - The Christian Science Monitor

"...well-written.... presciently criticizes the weak oversight of the oil futures market." - The Washington Post

"A worthy successor to 'The Prize'... A riveting read with a bold blueprint for ending the madness."
- Terry Tamminen, former Secretary of the California Environmental Protection Agency

"Juhasz identifies and articulates an extraordinary problem, provides the critical details, offers real solutions, and gives concrete steps to achieve them. In a world that glorifies war and violence, Juhasz offers thoughtfulness and activism."
- Professor Jody Williams, 1997 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, Campaign Ambassador, International Campaign to Ban Landmines

"If our military troops, and the American public, want to know why the US invaded and occupied Iraq, here is the answer. Get your notebooks ready for the facts about oil and the people and companies that are the richest in the world."
- Colonel Ann Wright, Retired, U.S. Army Reserves

"In the spirit of Ida Tarbell, the legendary muckraker who first exposed Rockefeller's monopolist schemes, Juhasz convincingly demonstrates how Standard Oil's descendants-Exxon, Mobil, and Chevron-have reassembled much of the power once wielded by their progenitor."
- Professor Michael T. Klare, author, Rising Powers, Shrinking Planet: The New Geopolitics of Energy

"Juhasz lifts the veil covering Big Oil... Best of all, she points the way out and inspires us to free ourselves from Big Oil's grip to build a more secure, sustainable and peaceful future. Read it and act!"
- Medea Benjamin, cofounder of CODEPINK: Women for Peace and Global Exchange
