About the Authors.
“Among the first to bring a book to the public are the Bloomberg News team of Stanley Reed and Alison Fitzgerald. Reed, based in London, had covered BP for more than a decade before the explosion. Fitzgerald is a Washington, D.C., correspondent ferreting out the political angles of corporate influence. The two journalists make a logical team, and their book is often enlightening about the corporate-political nexus that placed enrichment of the already rich and aggrandizement of the already influention above the common good. . . Reed and Fitzgerald personalize BP by devoting lots of space to John Browne, the flamboyant chief executive officer from 1995-2007. . . He is by far the most memorable character in the book.”
