I might buy another of his books, but not if he narrates it.
The ending was so abrupt I was certain there had to be another part to come. But there wasn't.
The narration was stilted and robotic, almost unbearable to listen to.
The subject matter was treated superficially, but adequately for an overview of the years discussed.
What was the deal with that ending? What a puzzle.
The reader was authentic without being overly dramatic
On the Beach
Civilization is a thin veneer
Terrific book about a genuine threat, well-told and effectively grim.
Sometimes it is necessary to explain the obvious. Anti-human campaigns,such as zero population growth, have consequences that should be obvious, but unfortunately aren't understood until it's too late.
The good news is that Christians who understand the biblical command to be fruitful and multiply are mankind's hope.
The narcissistic, short-sighted, me-centered reap what they sow: few children, and an end to their way of life, necessarily.
He read it with emphasis seemingly born of empathy. Very effective.
Buy it. Read (listen to) it. Believe it. It's obvious.
