Informative, real, inspiring.
The author combines the hard science with a little bit of a biography that is not distracting from the pertinent geo stuff.
No but I will now.
Yes, it was somewhat informative.
This book was just not as interesting as I had hoped. This is a subject that I am incredibly interested in and I felt like a learned little that I didn't already know and was actually bored through a lot of it. It is largely focused on anthropology and a lot of what the author claims is mostly opinion (albeit, a very well studied and informed opinion).
Bold, disturbing, passionate.
I felt as if the book was being performed by the author.
Many, but describing them would give away too much.
Not at all too technical; this book is geared towards persons with little background in science.
The author has a very good personal balance with her love for her dog and her love for science.
This was a good read and informative. The author is very aware of her biases as a dog lover and does an excellent job of explaining why an understanding of the biology behind a dogs behavior can enrich the human-dog relationship.
The best book I have listened to on audible so far!
This book truly captures the way that science works in lay terms and is a great combination of History, Geology, and Biology with a special emphasis on the plight of every new scientific discovery. I could have listened to this book in one sitting. It is a must read, seriously buy this one if you are on the fence.
The characters were described vividly.
I don't think that the story could have been changed, it just didn't connect George Orwell and Burma in the way that the author had intended.
The accents of the Burmese people.
I learned a lot from this book, but I am still not entirely sold on overkill as the singular cause of North American megafaunal extinctions.
This topic is a little far from my interests so it isn't quite in the same realm as other titles I have listened to thus far.
I liked the perspective that I gained from this read, even though it was a little bit hard for me to get through.
As a geologist/biologist I expected to be keenly interested in this book. The comprehensive historical survey lost me, however, and it became somewhat tedious to listen to the many examples. This may have been a better
