I heard the authors on NPR's Fresh Air and it would have been better if one of them had read the book.
The narrator on the audio book had a tone that almost put me to sleep but the book was good. It was great to hear about all the government is doing to combat terrorism. I never hear of most of these techniques in the newspaper. The holistic plan by the US is wider than expected. It makes you feel better about the US military than any other press they get.
I am very concerned with climate change, and gave this a listen in hopes of learning something new. The idea that methane and CO2 can be released from warming bogs was new to me, so I learned something.
I wish there was more data to backup general gloom of the book.
The layout of the chapters was great. Explore what life will be like as gas prices reach new highs -- each chapter looking at life with a new price at the pump.
While the speculating about what might happen was entertaining. I was disappointed that the predictions were not backed up with much argument or any evidence.
