An Inconvenient Truth: The Planetary Emergency of Global Warming and What We Can Do about It

Albert Gore, Jr., Author, Beau Bridges, Read by, Cynthia Nixon, Read by Simon & Schuster Audio $19.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-7435-7202-6
The much-discussed and highly regarded 2006 book and film by Gore arrives on audio two years later. While the material and central focus on global warming is clearly the most important aspect of the book, Beau Bridges is the only truly captivating reader here. Cynthia Nixon and Blair Underwood tend to drone on in monotone voices that take some of the impact out of Gore's findings. Bridges, however, reads with a stern and commanding tone that grips readers from the very start, never failing to relate the information with sheer honesty and true grit. As a whole, the audio is still as important and poignant as the original, and though certain aspects have been left out, the listener is still met with the same urgency to act. A Rodale paperback.
