With the former vice president’s popularity at an all-time high following the success of An Inconvenient Truth, Al Gore returns with a new look at how the world is changing before our eyes and where we’re headed in the future. Although the book proves both interesting and informative, the performance leaves much to be desired. True to his stiff reputation, Gore’s narration is dry and monotone. His reading lacks the eloquence and confidence of a professional narrator—he reads the entire audiobook without the slightest variation. Unfortunately, this fascinating and important book isn’t done justice by this audio edition. A Random House hardcover. (Jan.)
