Bibliography[edit]

The Boom (Simon & Schuster, 2014): In The Boom, Russell Gold examines the issue of fracking through interviews with memorable and colorful characters: a green-minded Texas oilman who created the first modern frack; an Oklahoman natural gas empire–builder who gave the world an enormous new supply of energy but was brought down by his own success; and many others. Russell not only details the history of fracking, but also underscores how the controversial procedure is changing the way we use energy.

Superpower: One Man's Quest to Transform American Energy, (Simon & Schuster, 2019).
