As these everyday heroes fight to align the awesome forces of nature with the extraordinary march of modern science, they are unaware that fate is about to put an unusual twist on their work—one that will place them at the heart of an unavoidable storm.I was all ready for a rip-roaring, action-packed adventure story with science and intrigue. It's a very calm story. Passionate in places, but passion in regards to policital and environmental issues, life changes, parenting, and scientific progress... Don't get me wrong. Good book. Great book. I'm planning on reading the sequel: Fifty Degrees Below.
Now I'm reading A Short History Of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson, a non-fiction title covering some of the most interesting scientific questions of all time.
