Review Of Shale Gas: The Promise and the Peril

Shale Gas: The Promise and the Peril is the ideal book for activists who are against fracking. The e-book presents fracking in easy-to understand terms (with the technical terms listed in a sidebar) so, if you're an activist who needs to make a point at a meeting, you can use terms your audience will understand and you won't become flustered when gas company representatives start using technical terms to counter your arguments.

Both sides of fracking are represented so you'll know in advance what to expect from your opposition  Shale Gas: The Promise and the Peril is neutral - you form your own opinion. The author, Vikram Rao, presents facts, not rhetoric, giving you a chance to present an informed opinion, which we all know is the best way to sway an audience. For example, the book lists two ways groundwater may be polluted by copanies engaged in fracking. If you want to prove that your community's water supply is tainted, you will find instances of these events happening and it will help you get your concerns heard by the right people. You can complain about your crappy well water all you want but unless you can show possible cause and effect, you're wasting your efforts.

Since most activists are spending their own precious time and money to help keep their community from being ravaged by fracking, you can click here to buy the more affordable e-book from Amazon. There's even a free Amazon app to read the book if you don't have a Kindle reader
