For a person who has not encountered John McPhee's lively writing, The Second John McPhee Reader is the perfect introduction. McPhee, author of Coming Into the Country, and Assembling California punctuates his delightful prose with a sharp sense of humor and a fascination with things most of us never bother to notice. Whether he's working for farmer in the Greenmarkets in Harlem, Brooklyn, or the Upper East Side in Giving Good Weight, or trekking through Switzerland in La Place de la Concorde Suissea, McPhee gives the listener an intimate and provocative glimpse of the physical landscape and the people who are shaped by it.

This Reader showcases a writer who not only is in absolute command of his craft, but also who revels in the pleasures of a fragile world. Narrator Nelson Runger's gravelly voice powerfully conveys McPhee's understated writing. Intriguing and thought-provoking, this audiobook is a must-listen for anyone interested in the natural or human worlds.

    " Always an entertaining read. John McPhee could write about anything and make it interesting. I had read several of the stories features here but it was fun to read an excerpt and remember the story. "

    " I love hiking, canoeing, and just hanging out with McPhee. There's not much page turning narrative to be had here, or ever, by McPhee, but the guy can take me to places any time. "

    " Maybe it's the unappealing cover or maybe it's the writing style, but this book didn't appeal to me. I really wanted to like it but just couldn't get there. I quit after 3 chapters/stories. "
