Adam Verner is up to the difficult task of narrating this complex story of the world's five past mass extinctions. Brannen's work is aimed at the general listener but is also filled with enough technical language and detail that a lesser performer could well have turned it into a mind-numbing reminder of the most awful kind of science textbook. Verner sounds truly interested in the material and draws in the listener as well. He seems at times to have just learned this cool fact that he's now sharing--one hears that kind of enthusiasm in his voice. This is challenging material for those not steeped in the earth's eras--some listeners may benefit by having a geologic timetable cheat sheet on hand for reference.
