Given the subject matter and the reviews suggesting that the authors had some good evidence for rejecting the land bridge theory of migration of the first Americans from Asia, I was really looking forward to this presentation.
It was, however, the driest book I have read or heard in a long time (and that is saying a lot, as I am a physician and read dry scientific studies every day). And the reader was up to the task; I have not in a long time heard such a monotonous reading. The information could be good--how would I know? This book might better lend itself, along with illustrations and footnotes, to a written form, rather than audio. After listening, I don"t intend to find out.
However, the premise is still an exciting one, and if the authors are capable, and find a good editor with a strong swing of red ink, they might just rewrite a plausible version of either a good technical journal or a good popular archeologic rending of their findings and hypothesis. Either would be welcome.
