"This book gives a detailed description and analysis of the events leading up to the explosion and fire at BP's Deepwater Horizon rig in the Gulf of Mexico on April 20, 2010. The authors provide a comprehensive, fair account of what happened and why, and what could be done to minimize the risk of future business and engineering disasters. Boebert and Blossom question the disaggregated business model for companies that undertake risky, complicated engineering projects in difficult and dangerous environments. They argue that a systems approach, with hands-on attention from top management, is crucial. Writing for the general intelligent reader, the authors provide a clear description of the technicalities of the rig, how it was supposed to work, and how it failed"-- Provided by publisher.

On April 20, 2010, the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico. It killed 11 workers and caused the worst oil spill in American history. The documentary director Brown traveled to small towns and major cities across Alabama, Louisiana and Texas to explore the fallout of the environmental disaster. Years later, the Southern Americans still haunted by the Deepwater Horizon explosion provide first-hand accounts of their ongoing experience, long after the story has faded from the front page.
