Product description

Review

“Let's hope this clear-eyed, up-to-date tour of all things nuclear. . . . Sparks a renewed nationwide debate.”
Wired

“Provocative. . . . A fresh look at nuclear power [that asks] whether the threat of global warming has changed the calculus of nuclear risk.”
The Washington Post Book World

“Illuminating. . . . A picaresque, flat-out love song to the bad boy of the great American energy debate.”
The Wall Street Journal

“Engaging and unusual.”
Foreign Affairs
