Who this book is for:

When I first heard about the landman business from a friend I was interested in learning more about it before putting any effort into trying to get hired.  Unfortunately, every resource about the profession I looked at was either very expensive ($500+ two day seminars) or not very informative (vague, poorly written books).  So I decided that I did indeed want to become a landman, and that I would put materials together to help anyone else in the same situation.  That's who this petroleum landman book is written to help.  If you are interested in finding out more about the job and how to get into it, this book is for you.  We offer a 100% money back guarantee if you are not completely satisfied.
