Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Clearly written and backed by a ton of research, "Poisoned Legacy" does an amazing job of exposing the culture of expediency which led British Petroleum to endanger lives and pollute our land and waters, not only in the Gulf, but also in Alaska, Kansas and Texas. I now understand at a deeper level the devastating effects that BP's decisions and actions have had. By the end, I found myself wondering how much of this can be remedied, and how much are we willing to sacrifice to have access to oil. While it's a long read, it is worth it. If you are an environmentalist, you want to know this story. If you live in America, you need to know this story.

This is a good and very interesting book. No regrets in my purchase. The bp story and experience that is unknown to the public is what makes this book interesting.
