  • There are many ... stories in this wonderful book, all of them directed at the transformation of the global map of power and wealth that has happened in the 21st century. Don't waste your time on Boris or Trump, Covid or novichock, just read this to find out what is really happening.

    Bryan Appleyard, The Sunday Times
  • Daniel Yergin won a Pulitzer in 1992 for The Prize, an acclaimed history of petroleum and political power ... In The New Map he turns his talents to what might be called geopolitical cartography ... Fans of the author's previous books will appreciate the snappy prose and plethora of well-told anecdotes ... revealing and apposite ... The book brings the general reader admirably up to date on the many subjects it covers.

  • The direction of travel in the global energy system seems clear: a historic shift away from the fossil fuels that have shaped the fat of nations for more than a century is under way. Who better to chart it than Daniel Yergin, the prizewinning US author and energy expert whose advice is sought by ministers and chief executives world wide? ... deftly told ... Yergin writes with the flair for dramatic detail [and] offers sprightly insights for any general reader seeking to understand the tensions in the South China Sea and the strife-torn Middle East

  • Yergin is the most respected chronicler of energy history and politics today. Yergin has enviable talents. He writes fluently in a style that brings to life the arcane dynamics of the energy business. He is deeply knowledgeable and analytically prescient... The New Map is an excellent read because, through multiple interconnected storylines, it pulls together the transformative occurrences that have shaped the energy world in recent years into a cogent framework from which the reader can discern the future pathways of the next energy transition.

    Vikram S Mehta, Indian Express
  • the book breezily takes the reader through the developments of the past few decades in the oil business and energy more generally, with an eye to political repercussions. With sections on America, Russia, China, the Middle East, the car industry and climate politics and policy, at its best it is both brisk and authoritative, an impressive combination.
