THE KNOWLEDGE How to Rebuild Our World From Scratch

by | Read by John Lee

Contemporary Culture • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

John Lee narrates this postapocalyptic "survival manual" in steady, crisp tones. After a long introduction that focuses on the various ways our civilization might destroy itself, Dartnell discusses how to rebuild everything from soap and fabric to rubber, plastics, glass, and thermal energy. In long discussions of how technology works, Lee describes how to make numerous items common in today's society. Lee's no-nonsense performance is perfect for a book about rebuilding society. But, of course, in the event of an actual apocalypse that wipes out power supplies, one would need the print version. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2014]
