Winchester's recounting of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake is dense with facts but light and breezy in style. Full of both geological history and personal anecdotes, the book explains the longstanding dangers of the San Andreas Fault and the long-term consequences of the earthquake it caused. Winchester also provides a palpably vibrant picture of life in San Francisco just before and following the earthquake.
