Bernie Krause writes about sound and noise. Sounds from the land and weather (geophony) - rain, waves, wind etc and sounds from animals (biophony). He also writes about noise, the sounds made by humans - restaurants that are too loud, planes overhead. I don't know if it was interesting or not. The author reads the book himself and he adds in lots of sound clips. It should have been a cool book. But he's a boring narrator and so it is hard to pay attention. A little bit of drama when being tossed 15 feet by a gorilla would have been appropriate, I think.
