THE WORLD WITHOUT US

THE WORLD WITHOUT US

Alan Weisman
Read by Adam Grupper

It’s almost disturbing that this book is so interesting. Weisman examines what the Earth would be like if there were no more humans. Assuming some sort of apocalypse that wipes us from the menu of mammals, he takes the long view, describing how our remnants would crumble and fade away over time—in some cases a very long time. Narrator Adam Grupper enhances this fascinating perspective through his impeccable reading, which is both sincere and balanced. Never veering into sensationalism, always objective and phlegmatic, Grupper takes what could be a depressing topic and makes it a book you just can’t stop listening to. This combination of science, history, and futurology teaches us much about who we are and what we will leave behind. K.M.
