This book is an excellent reference guide for those studying geology and earth sciences. As someone who is currently working on a Masters in Earth Sciences I find this an invaluable tool to assist me in my studies.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre, March 16 2010
While sections of this book are very interesting and tell a fascinating tale of current nuclear installations and their relevant background, much of the book is written in a very dry yet journalistic point of view. As someone who is fascinated with nuclear history, I longed for more detailed references on the Hanford, Washington facility, K-25 and Happy Valley in Oakridge, Tennessee and the myriad of information which is now available to the public on our tumultuous atomic past. More references to Los Alamos and Alamogordo, New Mexico and the remnants of buildings where scientific greats like Wigner, Oppenheimer and Teller stressed over internal moral conflicts to create arguably the most prolific device in the history of man were anticipated and would have been appreciated.
