I enjoyed his presentation and the analogy that he uses to illustrate his idea--often science is guided by experiences of a layman (Read the story of how the aerospace industry developed MAC quality wings with the idea from a janitor's real life observation). Mr McGuire's book is definitely worth the price, read, and thought!
In reading this book, I found myself thinking about the volcanism in northern Arizona and the lava dams across the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon over millions of years. I have wondered what would have caused this volcanism, these massive lava flows? Perhaps something I never considered: the Yellowstone impact. Perhaps something else. It's fun to think about. Isn't that what new theories are supposed to do? To make people to think, to talk, to say, "I wonder?"
I recommend you read this book. Whether you agree, disagree or sit on the fence, it is a good, enjoyable read.
