It is very difficult to capture nature's terror. In spite of all its might men have not been able to conquer the nature. If any disturbance is caused in the equilibrium of the nature's environment, nature reacts in the form of deadliest earthquake as in Gujarat, terrorising tsunamis as in the Andamans and other coastal areas of India and other countries, disastrous tornadoes, horrifying fires etc. Such famous global environmental disasters have been grouped in eleven chapters of the book and last chapter guides how effectively these disasters can be managed in a better way. In a paradox that is both cruel and kind, destruction spurs reconstruction and acts as a stimulus for economic enterprise. Surveys have shown that more often than not, stock markets which crash immediately in the wake of catastrophe tend to gain new highs shortly after as work of reconstruction starts, generating large scale production and employment. History reveals many such examples. The great fire which destroyed almost all of London in the 17th century turned out in the long run to be more of a blessing than a bane. The conflagration scoured the city of the filthy, crowded hovels which were inevitable breeding places for plague-carrying rats and other disease bearing vermin. Rebuilt, London came into its own as one of the biggest and richest cities in the world. Recently after the Gujarat earthquake in 2001, Bhuj has progressed like anything and has become a place of worth seeing. All these fascinate a reader and he would be tempted to finish the book in one sitting.
