When the Earth Shakes by Simon Winchester - ESSENTIAL

Winchester, Simon When the Earth Shakes: Earthquakes, volcanoes, and tsunamis, 65 pages.  Viking (Penguin), 2015.  $19. 

Winchester blends first hand experiences and research as he teaches about the enormous forces that push and pull our Earth in different directions.  He mines his 30 years of experience working for The Guardian newspaper in England and backs up his personal knowledge with just the right scientific information to create a book that is a great addition to many libraries.
