We Gambled Everything is the autobiography of Canadian petroleum leader Arne Nielsen. A key figure in the genesis and evolution of the oil and gas industry in Canada, Nielson dispassionately locates his life and career in farseeing historical, geological, corporate, and political contexts. His memoir illuminates a canny world inhabited by premiers, prime ministers, corporate chairmen, and chief executive officers, affording a comprehensive insider’s account that ties the landmark discoveries that created his industry to the corporate, political, and economic changes and developments that gave his industry context and meaning. Here is a rare firsthand account of a captain of industry who helped forge that industry from the ground up.
