...timely and relevant to many sectors of our global economy and the future direction of OPEC member countries. --Dr. Dorothea El Mallakh, Executive Director, International Centre for Energy, Environment and Development (ICEED) Dr. Mohammad Al-Sahlawi's book will become a must-read for energy policy experts, politicians, and global leaders in academia and in the business community. Given his extensive experience with OPEC, his knowledge of Saudi Arabia and his entree into the world's policy making apparatus, he brings a wealth of experience and a profound and nuanced understanding of how the energy sector functions, the major players, and the role of OPEC in the world's energy future. His work will be widely read and will help to guide the world to a more efficient and environmentally benign future. Humanity is in dire need of his wisdom. --Peter Adam, Founder/Chairman ATG, UAE
