I have actually read this book twice, once to get it about the Bomb, and once to "get it." I'm still not sure I understand the science, but the story of the humankind and technical genius that brought the terrible weapon to fruition is a tale that needs telling...Rhodes is your guy.

This is marvelous storytelling, rich with fact and personality, keen in it's portrayals of the people who made the "gadget." If you want to get down and dirty, this is your book. 4 stars...read it and weep.
