BP — Where did it all go wrong? is a quick-read business biography; it is a history and current breakdown of British Petroleum. The book introduces the reader to BP, how the company was formed, the chequered past it has, and discusses the recent disaster of one of the biggest oil spills in history. The book is skillfully written by Paul Andrews, who interprets many of the more advanced technological points, and explains them to the reader in more readable, plain English. The book asks — and attempts to answer — many questions about BP. How did they become so powerful? What caused the recent disaster? Could anything have been done to prevent it? And, of course, what does the future hold?
