In honor of Earth Month, this week’s featured book is The World Without Us by award winning journalist Alan Weisman.
The content of this fascinating book revolves around a simple question:
What would happen to the land, the cities, the ocean, the climate, our garbage, our art? How long — if ever — would it take for all human traces to disappear?
Weisman’s does a great job of approaching these questions from all angles and taking readers through his journey of discovery and research. I know that the word ‘research’ can often mean boring, but this book is anything but boring. The New York Times Book Review called it “A fascinating eco-thriller…” and I couldn’t put it down — or stop talking about it with my friends and family.
