Sarah Palin's nomination as the vice presidential running mate of John McCain launched her into world-wide renown. As people seek to learn more about her, a recurring question emerges: What is her record as an administrator, and more particularly, how did she meet the challenge of balancing the interests of the people of Alaska against those of Alaska's three major oil and gas producing companies. This book is a must read for those who seek to understand her qualifications for national leadership. "Sarah Takes on Big Oil" illuminates her rise to power in Alaska, along with her concrete successes and failures in dealing with the industry that is the lifeblood of the state's economy.
