Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Cal Orey's wonderfully written book about geologist Jim Berkland's unique but scientifically unorthodox approach to predictions of forthcoming earth tremors should register 9.9 on the Richter Scale!
--Clarisa Bernhardt, columnist for shirleymaclaine.com

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.
--Motoji Ikeya, Professor Emeritus of Osaka University, Japan; author of Earthquakes and Animals

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.
--Kathleen Antrim, author of Capital Offense, columnist for the San Francisco Examiner

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.
--Stephen Spignesi, author of Catastrophe! The 100 Greatest Disasters of All Time

Berkland's predictions have been �on the mark� on numerous occasions, and Cal Orey's new book delves into the science and the psychic phenomena behind it all.
