Praise for TWILIGHT IN THE DESERT "This book is likely to be the most important ever written about oil." -- The late Richard E. Smalley, PhD, Nobel Laureate in Chemistry, 1996 Former University Professor, Gene and Norman Hackerman Professor of Chemistry, Former Professor of Physics, Rice University "[Simmons] effectively confronts the complacent notion that there are ample oil reserves in Saudi Arabia. Twilight in the Desert should provoke anyone who believes that the recent increase in oil prices reflects either a speculative bubble or short-term supply constraints." -- Edward L. Morse, former deputy assistant secretary of state for international energy policy "Everyone must understand this thesis, whether you agree or not, since it may change life as we know it." -- Jim Rogers, author of Hot Commodities and Adventure Capitalist "Matt Simmons's book is a challenge to Middle Eastern oil producers to provide the world with more and better oil field data . . . If Simmons proves directionally correct, we are in for a huge and early challenge to find alternative transportation fuels." -- Dr. Herman Franssen, President, International Energy Associates, Inc. "Provides much-needed transparency to a subject long hidden from public view. While all may not agree with its findings, it is the ensuing debate surely to follow that gives value to the author's efforts." -- Robert E. Ebel, Chairman, Energy Program, Center for Strategic and International Studies, Washington, D.C.Simmons, Matthew R. is the author of 'Twilight in the Desert The Coming Saudi Oil Shock And the World Economy', published 2006 under ISBN 9780471790181 and ISBN 0471790184.
