Rezension bezieht sich auf: Noah's Flood: The New Scientific Discoveries About the Event that Changed History (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Naoh's Flood offers a well written personal account of how a group of oceanographers stumbled upon 'that kernal of truth' that underlies the biblical flood myth. The book's strength is its readability. For those readers who desire more critical presentations, you would do better to go to the scientific literature. I found the book very disappointing in several respects: 1) the quoted remarks, thirty years after the fact, seems a bit of a stretch; 2) the illustrations carry almost no information. The crude sketches could easily been replaced by cross section maps of the inlets to the Mediterranean and Black Seas.Bathymetry maps of the Black Sea would have also been nice; 3) There should have been much more discussion of the event leading to the desertification of the Mediterranean during the Miocene. Although published elsewhere (most of this story is), this is a story that is even more compelling. 4) There is absolutely no reason why this book should cost 25 dollars in hardback. The lack of color photographs should have made this book no more than 15 dollars.
