"The Greatest Story Ever Told II"'
Good introduction to the newest ideas about geology." Newer" meaning the integrated view of Earth as both an organic and inorganic symbiotic system. How life created Earth and Earth created life. Versus the the older way of thinking about "rocks" being separated from
"animals." Also gives sense of Deep Time and Earth as a dynamic, changing thing. We can no longer think that "the mountains are eternal." Quite the contrary.
*Narration is good. But I wish that pace could be a little slower, with pauses after important points. Scientific subjects require processing time. This is one area where audio books are inferior to paper books. I don't know if there is an easy answer to the difference in format.
Oh this book was good, so so good, and I belly laughed hard at their geeky jokes which as promised were indeed groaners. The jokes were that nerd-funny I would pause the book, snort-laugh and go tell the joke to my husband who would also gasp and snort-laugh.
A great introduction to some of the coolest stuff there is to know and think about in the universe - the delivery was fantastic and the subjects extremely interesting, all explained clearly and kind to the non-geeks in the world, not that I have ever met any to ask.
I liked the author's explanation for why they do not believe the earth has been visited by flying saucers.
I liked their explanations of most things, actually.
great book, I loved it.
