it was ok
Read in March, 2010

I found the subject interesting (The geology of the Appalachians), but I felt that the author jumped around too much and did not adequately explain terminology.

Matt Is this Book 1 of Annals of the Former World? I listened to 4 of the 5 and felt the same way about the terminology. When you can't see the technical terms and the narrator just keeps on going, it made it tough.

Matt This is the 2nd book in Annals of the Former World. I hope I can find another non-textbook geology book because I find this stuff very interesting, but I will need it to be a bit more concise and a little bit more helpful in the terminology department to keep my interest (due to my low attention spa...squirrel!).
