Dear Listener, If there were a chance that hearing this audiobook could set off a chain of events that would lead to Apocalypse, if the Apocalypse promised to result in a new age of enlightenment, a Heaven on Earth like never before? Personally, I'll take the security of my cozy life over a chance at Nirvana. But status quo may no longer be an option, for any of us. This audiobook will convince you that there is a nonnegligible chance that the year 2012 will be more tumultuous, catastrophic, and, quite possibly, revelatory than any other year in human history. A new era is about to be born, with all the pain and blood and joy and release that birth naturally entails. Facing oblivion, or at least megametamorphosis, is something that few of us are emotionally prepared to do. Thus my excuse for the gallows humor that pervades this story. In a memorable Mary Tyler Moore episode, Mary cracks up laughing at the funeral of Chuckles the Clown who, dressed as a peanut while marching in a parade, was shucked to death by an elephant. If Mary can giggle in the face of death, so can we. With kind regards, Lawrence E. Joseph

"The scariest thing about APOCALYPSE 2012 are the two words on the back of audiobook: General Nonfiction. So does that mean Joseph's predictions are true? Not exactly. It means that his many and varied sources reveal facts that are accurate, but whether they will all come together for a certain doom is, thankfully, not as certain. Narrator Feodor Chin is to be commended for his confident delivery and for keeping the quaver out of his voice as he talks about the ecological, economic, spiritual, psychic, and social rungs on the ladder of the apocalypse. It would be one thing if the author were some no-name quack, but it's harder to ignore Joseph, a former science reporter for THE NEW YORK TIMES. Scary stuff--intentionally so. M.S.
