This book is very interesting. A whole lot to learn. I was about to give up on it after 2 or 3 discs because I found a lot of geological foundation. There is so much included that I felt overwhelmed. But I decided to stick with it and am glad I did. As the book progresses the stories of places, people, things, reasons, events are so well told and intertwine so fully that after a while it becomes amazing. Having lived in the Bay Area of California, especially during the EQ of 1989, I have a very real relationship to the stories that were told of the 1906 EQ and others. Quite an experience that doesn't stop....even after this many years. So, read it, enjoy. :)
