The scariest thing about APOCALYPSE 2012 are the two words on the back of audiobook: General Nonfiction. So does that mean Joseph's predictions are true? Not exactly. It means that his many and varied sources reveal facts that are accurate, but whether they will all come together for a certain doom is, thankfully, not as certain. Narrator Feodor Chin is to be commended for his confident delivery and for keeping the quaver out of his voice as he talks about the ecological, economic, spiritual, psychic, and social rungs on the ladder of the apocalypse. It would be one thing if the author were some no-name quack, but it's harder to ignore Joseph, a former science reporter for THE NEW YORK TIMES. Scary stuff--intentionally so.
