I already own more books than I can read in a lifetime (which I find highly depressing), and so I buy fewer books than I used to, and I have begun to weigh the pros and cons of any book I read. It’s a little crass, but when I consider whether or not I should read a book, I often think of Elaine from Seinfeld wondering if a boyfriend was sponge worthy.
I have recently interacted with two different authors, and I was struck by the radical difference between how the two authors approached me to help them with their book. Here is a short story about what happened.
This book on the Grand Canyon is somewhat scientifically technical, but the numerous color images, graphs, and charts help make it more accessible to the average reader. No matter what your views are on the Flood and the formation of the Grand Canyon, I highly recommend this book.
