Robert Petkoff's clear and intelligent-sounding narration suits the global scope of this audiobook. His pace, cadence, and tone complement the fact-filled text, and his forthright style balances the complexity of the topic. Subtitled "Energy, Climate and the Clash of Nations," this audiobook traces today's altered geopolitical landscape. Yergin, a Pulitzer Prize-winning energy consultant, understands current geopolitical stresses surrounding energy production and use. Written during the COVID-19 pandemic, the audiobook details its severe economic effects. Yergin pours some cold water on those who believe energy usage can be transformed quickly or all that is lacking is will. Activists may deride some of his assertions, but this audiobook serves as a primer on today's environmental challenges. A.D.M. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2021]
