Author Scott Christianson has fashioned a terrific book out of thin air, about poison gases, both natural and man-made. Everything from volcanoes and leaking methane to horrific industrial accidents and chemical warfare, Holocaust gas chambers and previous and future extinctions. The research is solid, the style is clear and compelling, the many stories are very interesting and I found this to be a surprisingly provocative and extremely timely book given what's been going on in Iceland, the Gulf of Mexico, and elsewhere on the globe--not to mention global warming. More than a standard library reference work, this is a fun read that is scholarly and authoritative, yet accessible and vivid. I liked it a lot!
