Über diesen Titel


First printing of the first edition. Neff B224. Pickens was CEO of Mesa Petroleum, and for a time a person of national stature in the corporate world. The book is said to be a whitewash of one of the most disliked men in the oil industry. (Neff). Illustrated by photos.

From Publishers Weekly:

Pickens, in case anyone needs to bereminded, is the independent Texas oil producer and financier who not long ago engineered, in his words, "the largest corporate merger of all time"the Gulf Oil "deal" that increased Gulf stock prices to the immense profit of shareholders (including Pickens) while obliterating the giant corporation itself. This memoir gives an inside, often eyebrow-raising look at the workings of the oil industry as Pickens progresses from a hardscrabble, Texas Panhandle existence to small-scale oil well wild-catting with financing hard to come by; regional and national success with his Mesa Petroleum Co.; risky North Sea exploration during the OPEC oil "shortage"; limited acceptance by industrial-establishment executives at hunting-lodge conclaves; the Gulf set-to and other, less spectacular deals. "The entrepreneurial spirit," says Boone, "is rooted in the desire to make money."
