For 10 years Russell Gold has been following the biggest energy story in the world, the rise of hydraulic fracturing technology.

The senior energy writer for the Wall Street Journal heads from Texas to Pennsylvania to the Dakotas in order to better illustrate and illuminate the rise of this technology and its impacts on the communities it inhabits, the U.S. markets and the world economy.

We talk with Gold about his new book "The Boom: How Fracking Ignited the American Energy Revolution and Changed the World."
