Twenty to thirty percent of children in the area woke up more than a minute before the Kobe, Japan, earthquake in 1995. Cal Orey's book shows that a nature-loving geologist like Jim Berkland, with a heart of a child, can forecast earthquakes.

A fascinating read full of amazing anecdotes and provocative information. Orey's book entertains while challenging conventional science. So be warned, once you start reading this book, you won't put it down.

In this landmark book, journalist Cal Orey demonstrates that Berkland will cross any chasm to deliver his quake wisdom.
Jim Baker, County Geologist of Santa Clara County, California
Can Berkland predict earthquakes? It seems so, and veteran author Cal Orey does an extraordinary job of not only telling Jim's story to the world, but also providing readers with an enormous amount of valuable information about earthquakes. Frankly, I wish I had this book when I was researching my own book about disasters. Highly recommended.
