...an informative and well-written book...For the geologist, engineer or manager who knows about exploration geology but not about probability, economic analysis, and decision-making techniques, I highly recommend this book.
Michael R. Walls, Geotimes, August 1996
...I found this book a highly readable, carefully constructed, painstakingly systematic presentation of a viewpoint that may be shared by many...the book is a significant and long overdue addition to the petroleum literature. I would add
Computing Risk for Oil Prospectsto a short list of books worth owning and rereading. The price tag is justified by the inclusion of the software and the data.
