JOEL ACHENBACH, of the Washington Post wrote A HOLE IN THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA: The race to kill the BP oil gusher.

The problem was a technological crisis in an alien realm: a blown-out oil well in mile-deep water in the Gulf of Mexico. For the engineers who had to kill the well, this was like Apollo 13, a crisis of untold danger and an unprecedented challenge. A suspense story, a mystery, a human tragedy: Achenbach has written a cautionary tale that doubles as a technological thriller.
