Robert Bryce has been a professional journalist for nearly three decades. His articles have appeared in dozens of publications including the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, National Review, Washington Post, American Conservative, and Counterpunch. His first book, Pipe Dreams: Greed, Ego, and the Death of Enron, received rave reviews and was named one of the best non-fiction books of 2002 by Publishers Weekly. His second book, Cronies: Oil, the Bushes, and the Rise of Texas, America's Superstate, was published in 2004. His third book, Gusher of Lies: The Dangerous Delusions of "Energy Independence," published in March 2008, was favorably reviewed by more than 20 media outlets. The American magazine called Gusher "a strong and much-needed dose of reality." A review of Gusher by William Grimes of the New York Times said that Bryce "reveals himself in the end as something of a visionary and perhaps even a revolutionary."

In 2010, Bryce published Power Hungry: The Myths of "Green" Energy, and the Real Fuels of the Future. In a review of Power Hungry in the Wall Street Journal, Trevor Butterworth called the book "unsentimental, unsparing, and impassioned; and if you'll excuse the pun, it is precisely the kind of journalism we need to hold truth to power." 

On May 13, 2014, Bryce will publish Smaller Faster Lighter Denser Cheaper: How Innovation Keeps Proving the Catastrophists Wrong. The book is an optimistic one. It shows how innovation and the inexorable human desire to make things Smaller Faster Lighter Denser Cheaper is providing consumers with Cheaper and more abundant energy, Faster computing, Lighter vehicles, and myriad other goods. That same desire is fostering unprecedented prosperity, greater liberty, and yes, better environmental protection.

Bryce, who has been writing about the energy business since 1989, spent 12 years writing for the Austin Chronicle. In May 2009, his essay on the corn ethanol scam was included in Food Inc., a book published in conjunction with the hit documentary by Eric Schlosser of the same name. From 2006 to September 2010, he worked as the managing editor of the Houston-based online publication, Energy Tribune. In April 2010, he joined the Manhattan Institute as a senior fellow in the think tank's Center for Energy Policy and the Environment. 

Bryce has appeared on dozens of TV and radio shows that have aired on variety of outlets including the BBC, MSNBC, Fox, Fox Business, Al Jazeera, CNN, PBS, and NPR.
