By Apoo Nehasapemathetalon Zweig - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This great report has just been made available for free online. The authors and copyright holders have authorized the book to be made available for free in pdf format. Because the data is so important and relevant to the ongoing Japanese crisis, anybody wanting to learn more about the reality of Chernobyl absolutely must read this book!

Important Reading Nov. 3 2010
By Joshua T - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have not read this work, but Helen Caldicott, on her podcast "If You Love This Planet", has interviewed the woman who cleaned up the translation from Russian to English. The book is based on 5,000 scientific articles out of 30,000 published in Russia between Chernobyl and 1992, when there simply was no money for further research. It reports on levels of radiation throughout the world, on increased death rates in the area around Chenobyl, on rates of leukemia and other cancers, on rates of children born with birth defects, on lingering radiation in the air, water, and soil.
When one considers that Chernobyl and Three Mile Island incidents involved relatively new reactors in their shakedown period, and that we are considering building twenty new reactors, this book commands attention.
The price makes me hesitate before purchase, but it is an incredibly important work.
As Aldous Huxley wrote, facts do not go away just because we choose to ignore them.

Brilliant - and the nuclear industry wants to convince you it's not. April 22 2014
By L. HaLevy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Ignore the negative reviews the trolls have been posting; this book is the truth about the Chernobyl nuclear disaster and a warning shot across the bow for any country thinking that going nuclear is a good idea. It's devastating and the bad news never ends. That's what the nuclear industry doesn't want you to know. Read the book, learn the truth and then - take action!

Where There's Smoke.... Nov. 8 2011
By Bumpkin Boy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Whenever a book gets nothing but "5"s and "1"s you know there's got to be something interesting going on! Add to that the fact that the NY Academy of Sciences which originally published the book under their Aegis has "withdrawn" it without comment, and that original paper copies now cost hundreds of dollars....Hmm! Makes me WANT to read it! Fortunately there are pdf downloads available - I found mine at: [...]
