A fascinating subject. This book is packed with information. Mr. Strieber has certainly done his research. Steps need to be taken to protect the power grid from the catastrophic damage it could incur from an unpredictable solar flare. A sample letter to your state representative is included, so they can hear not only from lobbyists, but concerned citizens. This is a well written and thought provoking book.
