An interesting look at the science of nuclear power, nuclear weapons, terrorism, space,energy and global warming. Published in 2008 so some of the book is out of date though the big picture ideas are still very relevant. Not perfect but offers some good facts on the topics and should be read to approach the subjects in a more objective manor. Worth reading if you are interested.

"I didn't finish this, but when I was reading it; I heard President Obama say, "He is going to be President"! That gives hope to my ambition of finishing it, maybe I'll check it out again.

Very informational book by an opinionated author.

The back cover review says that a more appropriate title would be "Physics for Useful Citizens"...that's actually a good suggestion.

This is one of those books you wish everyone would read so that discussions about important issues would be more informed and productive rather than an exchange of ideological soundbites.
