Definitely not objective. Very slanted toward the left. Does a good job of highlighting the environmental degradation caused by the extraction of the oil.

Tends to really slam the Alberta Conservative government almost to the point of having a vendetta.

Walks us through the industry by taking a personal look through it with people involved in the industry as well as those who are affected by it.

Worth a read

Quick interesting read. I enjoyed the information even if it was heavily biased. Weather you believe in global warming or not the reality of overconsumption is very real and the author paints a bleak future unless some changes are made

A frightening and infuriating book about how successive Alberta governments have allowed oil companies a free hand in the province, and the damage that has resulted. Some of Marsden's claims would carry more weight if they had source footnotes, but this is still a compelling condemnation of an industry that seems to make its own rules.
