Editorial Reviews

"This book is philosophical, the least to describe it; anyone who wants to understand what it is about should read chapter 1 at least twice. The reflections given by the author are at the same time philosophical and scientific. As the title correctly implies, it is the reflection of a personwho got involved in oil and gas forecasting. Looking at oil and gas forecasting in such a unique mathematical way is interesting; however, the book would be interesting and stimulating to any geologist involved in the oil and gas industry."--AAPG Bulletin
