Ive seen Gianna on Bloomberg and have found her to be an informative voice in the energy sector. That being said, I feel like too much time was wasted in performing a post mortem on the recent cyclical downturn--and recovery in commodity prices and by extension the energy sector. I was hoping to read a critical analysis on valuable metrics that can be used to analyze energy-related stocks, how to read into servicing cycles, how backlogs work into an analysis, etc.; and spend less time reading about what I believe are peripheral subjects. There is also a certain level of redundancy when it comes to this book and that is done at the expense of more granular discussion points.

At its core, I feel as if this book tried to cover too much ground and should have taken a more focused angle on the industry. A lot was lost in not putting more time into the three main industry sectors: E&P's, Integrateds, Servicers (which could be further broken down into several sub-sectors) and their underlying dynamics.

This book seems lost somewhere between a sell-side primer on several industry sectors and a book such as The Prize (amazing book by the way). It simply just didnt go all the way in any of the subjects.

Its good for people looking to get a view of the energy complex from 50,000 ft.

As an introduction, I think the book is pretty comprehensive, although I found that it frequently assumes the reader is familiar with the jargon of the industry. I usually look to the glossary and index for help, but found these of use about 50% of the time. While the author covered most of the traditional energy investment topics, I was disappointed that there was little mention of Master Limited Partnerships, which are increasingly attractive options to stocks and bonds. Also, little discussion of shale gas was included, which is a game changer in the energy industry by all accounts. All in all, however, I learned a lot about the basics of energy investments, and am encouraged to learn more.
