The much-discussed and highly regarded 2006 book and film by Gore arrives on audio two years later. While the material and central focus on global warming is clearly the most important aspect of the book, Beau Bridges is the only truly captivating reader here. Cynthia Nixon and Blair Underwood tend to drone on in monotone voices that take some of the impact out of Gore's findings. Bridges, however, reads with a stern and commanding tone that grips readers from the very start, never failing to relate the information with sheer honesty and true grit. As a whole, the audio is still as important and poignant as the original, and though certain aspects have been left out, the listener is still met with the same urgency to act. A Rodale paperback.

Most Interesting: One of the most interesting parts of this book is the side effects that technology has on the Earth. There are also some improvements that technology has made. One of them being that it has improved people’s lives in many ways. “A hundred and fifty years ago, before the invention of the electric lightbulb, the world at night was dark”. However technology hasn’t always been used wisely. The former Soviet Union diverted water from two mighty rivers in Central Asia in order to irrigate cotton fields.
Was It A Good Book: Yes, This book was an interesting book because it was filled with many interesting facts about global warming and the impact humans have made on the planet. Al Gore who was Bill Clintons vice president narrates the book and the movie. He talked about his personal experiences with the change in today’s society and how it affects the world around him and also about his travels and understanding of the changes being made to the atmosphere.
