1.0 out of 5 stars TOO BASIC November 10, 2013

It is not deep enough and disappointing, even for the novice. Gas is barely mentioned and economic issues are not considered.
Hard to understand the purpose of the book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good information, poor writing January 18, 2013

If you don't know much about the industry it has plenty of useful information, you just have to get past the poor writing that makes it annoying to read at times.

2.0 out of 5 stars Horribly written book! January 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Did an editor ever even look at this?? Half the book is a glossary and some publically available lists of oil fields and data. The "book" part is a poorly composed mess that is somewhat informative for someone completely devoid of oil/gas knowledge (thus the 2nd star). Don't waste your money.

The book is excellent, though there is some confusion with pictures. It often says "See Pic number such and such" and the picture with this number is waaaay ahead and related to different topic. Other than that, this is a carefully structured, plain language and smart book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Helpful Overview February 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book in order to understand some of the basic of oil and gas exploration and drilling since most our my customers are in this market. I found Theodore's small book to be a very helpful introduction to a subject in which I have not been able to find any really helpful introductory books. It seems that most of the books available are for the serious geological scientist and not for newbies like me. So with that in mind I was very pleased to encounter this book so at least I have a basic idea of the concepts behind oil and gas exploration. Thank you Mr. Theodoropoulos.
