My son picked this book from his school library and wanted me to read it to him. As as science teacher with a background in seismology, I was amazed at the misconceptions that were perpetuated by this author. The Richter scale is not a very common way to estimate an earthquake's magnitude. I have no idea why that persists. Perhaps it is because of books like this. Also, seismic scales do not begin at 1. In fact, negative magnitudes are possible. As a science teacher, I work hard to undo misconceptions that are learned at an earlier age. It is probably easier to avoid tricky concepts when writing for a younger audience, but I would hope that more authors rise to the challenge of presenting the most accurate information possible.

Earthquakes happen all the time, and many people don't see the dangers of them. The book states, "Major earthquakes cause great loss of life." People need to be more aware of there surroundings. The book also states, "no place on earth is totally safe from earthquakes." This is why we need to be aware of these things, because they could happen anywhere at anytime.

Overall, I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in this subject. It's an easy read, which would benefit you in many ways. Even if you couldn't care less about earthquake, I'm sure this book would interest you.
