    1. I found this account of Aramco rather accurate. I worked and lived in Dhahran working for Saudi Aramco for 10 years. It was a wonderful company for me and my family.

    2. An interesting and well done history. I lived in Saudi as a kid while my dad worked for Aramco. This book unfolds the whole story of which we were tiny part, and provides a greater depth of knowledge about the whole reason we were there.

    3. Very good book, and it is good for anyone who wants to know about the kings (and exxonmobil) of Saudia Arabia.

    4. Intriguing story of how the U.S. paved the way for theirs and Saudi Arabia's amazing capacity for greed and decadencewith a little "God" thrown in to boot.
