Interesting first half of the book but then it got bogged down in so many details that it started going in circles and i could not continue and kept falling asleep. Basically the concept is that western North America will have a huge earthquake sometime in the next few hundred years.

If you are looking for science, I couldn't find it here or I got lost in the narrative. Examples of earthquakes in differents countries are given.
