For the 1994 first edition, journalist Ritche and geologist Gates had in mind lay readers who wanted to learn about volcanic eruptions and major earthquakes in the US and worldwide, and about some of the science that underlies them. For the revised edition, they retain the kind of information useful and interesting to people with no scientific background, but also add enough scientific content that the book could be used as a supplement, or even a stand-alone textbook for an advanced high school or introductory college course.
