There is an appropriate gravitas to James Naughton's fine performance of this ambitious audiobook. Lopez's far-reaching self-proclaimed "autobiographical reflection" crosses broad swaths of time and boldly travels the world, and Naughton provides excellent navigation throughout this expansive recording. His patient, capable voice steers the listener through shifts not only in time and place, but also in topic and style--always returning to concerns about our planet's health and future. Listening to Naughton is like sitting down with a revered elder and hearing him regale us with fact, speculation, and commentary, by turns. There is lovely writing, a skilled delivery, and much to think about in this production. The breadth and length are not for the timid, but the topics should appeal to us all.
