Description - Earthshaking Science by Susan Elizabeth Hough
This is the first book to really make sense of the dizzying array of information that has emerged in recent decades about earthquakes. Susan Hough, a research seismologist in one of North America's most active earthquake zones and an expert at communicating this complex science to the public, separates fact from fiction in clear, accessible prose. Because earthquake science is so new, it has rarely been presented outside of technical journals. Earthshaking Science changes all this.
