This book summarizes basic facts that give the reader an idea of how the world economy will be positioned in Russia's favor in terms of energy, I.e., uranium, oil, gas. It also describes how the United State dollar reserve currency is at the end of its time as a superpower (who doesn't know that?).

What I didn't like about this book is how terribly written it is. All of his phrases are colloquial and are difficult to interpret even with the simplicity of the ideas set forth. His order of information seems as though he scribbled ideas on a napkin and packed some google searches into a book. Another thing I disliked is the constant Racist Innuendo's towards the Arab states which were kind of lame. He basically makes jokes about sand when referring to any of the middle Eastern countries, often referring to them as "dictatorships in sand dunes".

Marin has some reasonable insight on the energy markets, but he is a fool to make blanket assumptions that mislead the reader about geopolitical issues going on the Middle East. Most of this book are his own opinions that sound as if they were formulated by Western media. He constantly throw's Shi'a muslims under the bus by equating them with Sunni extremist's, while simultaneously defending Saudi Arabian interests as under " threat" by minority Shi'a regimes in Syria and Lebanon. This would make sense if there were Shi'as invading Sunni's, but its the opposite way around and it always has been. There is no specific investment insight coming out of this book; he's obviously bullish on the East. Not worth the time and money, I basically just summarized the whole book.

Format: Hardcover
The Colder War: How the Global Energy Trade Slipped from America's Grasp by Marin Katusa is an interesting look into an issue that has ramifications that could affect the entire civilized world. Very informative in showing the motivation behind Putin and Russia with their control and quest of oil and other energy markets. While the cold war ended, it was merely replace with another one, except this one is more dangerous in the context that who controls the oil, controls the world. In the end, it's not about ideology, rather about the bottom line. I don't think there is a dogma there, rather a desire to control and amass wealth.

Overall, a very well written book delivering clear and precise information in a manner that is easy to follow. Marin Katusa has done a great job in putting all of this together where anyone can understand it. At the very least, it brings into play, another perspective and awareness into current events. A book well worth the time to read.

I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand the world of energy and the roles being played by the several involved countries. The conclusions are hard to dispute. Also this book is extremely easy to read which makes it even more outstanding for a novice on this topic- like me.

I really enjoyed this book. Marin Katusa did an amazing job making a complicated subject such as global energy relevant and understandable to the lay person. The information was well researched and very clear and precise and Marin Katusa's conclusions were scary at times but hard to dispute. I loved the history lesson that Marin provided of not just Russia but of the middle east, I feel like he taught me a lot over the course of this fantastic book.

The first part of the book is more like snips from the old newspapers. Boring and known facts and allegations. The truth is that this period alone would merit a separate book twice the size at least. Once it comes to the author's field of expertise it becomes really interesting. That part deserves 5 stars. There are several great qualities of Katusa's writing. One is total neutrality to any ideology. Pure impartial analysis. It is so rare nowadays. The second is clarity of thought. The information is presented in such concise way, so clear that anybody can understand. The third quality is to make an interesting reading about topic that is by its nature dry and boring.
The book will make some people a little bit bruised, each for a different reasons. Telling the naked truth tends to do that.
The one more thing that I'd like to see in this book is the analysis how the oil price is related to the exchange rates of the major currencies (including gold) and the interest rates in the US and the rest of the world.

We need this alternative view of our demonized enemy. One need not like Putin to admire his dangerous game, one he may very well win.

Written both frankly and clearly I found this book to be very enlightening and interesting. The author sums up recent past and current events and frames and connects them in a way that drastically increased my understanding of energy, Putin, the Middle East, Europe and Asia. I was expecting the book to be dry but it pulled me in and I enjoyed it very much.
