"America the Book" was fantastic, so I wasn't sure they could follow it up with the same wit and social insight. But they did. Earth is clever throughout, and they get most of the Daily Show cast involved in the audio book. And the writing is fantastic as always. It's amusing and insightful - satire at its best.
We've listened to this several times. It's more about the scientists than the science, but that human element keeps it consistently accessible. And Bryson does a great job of making complex subjects understandable, while also allowing listeners to relate to the various concepts through some clever metaphors. And the narrator is absolutely fantastic. He could probably make a grocery list sound pretty engaging. Of course, this is better than a grocery list. Highly recommended.
