Besides, it's like movies ... if you're expecting too much, you'll be disappointed.
Oh it puts forth some good arguements and thought material like most Crieghton books do. But you will see that it is already pretty Hollywooded up. Like he presumed the book and screenplay were one and the same... but it will keep your attention. Just presenting all the conflicting scientific data on global warming makes it an interesting read.
