I think this would be a good one to read instead of listen to the audiobook. The reader is pretty boring and unenthusiastic. I got the impression at points that he didn't really know what he was saying.
As far as the actual book, there is tons of good information, might be a little much for someone who is not a professional, and a bit light for someone who is. I thought it was worth listening to though. I'm a beginning geology student.

To much rheteric
I started listening to this but had to stop as the author rambled on on a rant against religion and Christianity in particular. I can not understand why this kind of thing is neccessary in a book that is supposably about nature and not political or religion.
I was looking forward to this as I live in Japan and from the recent eartquake you can surely understand but it was not worth the opinionated rant that has nothing to do with the subject
Sorry, but I recommend you stay away from this one
