Fracking is making an increasing impact on the world, but most people are familiar with it from an environmental standpoint. Saudi Americagoes beyond that to examine the true story of fracking's impact -- on Wall Street, the economy and on geopolitics. McLean tells the neglected story of the financial gambles that are the reasons for over-optimism and inflated promises. It's a bit like the return to the Enron story: over eagerness in partaking in a boom leads to all types of problems, including ignoring reality and risks, and in the case of Aubrey McClendon, deception.
