From the reviews:"Tainter and Patzek use the story of Gulf oil spill as the background for discussing the energy-complexity spiral, and its relationship to this accident. ... Drilling Down touches on many interesting topics, from details about how extraction is done ... to overviews of how various civilizations have dealt with rising complexity and reduced energy flows. ... The book is well worth ... . With one detail-oriented author, and one 'big picture' author, the book includes something for everyone." (Gail Tverberg, Financial Sense, September, 2011)
