really liked it

This is a great book for someone looking for an interesting read that still teaches you something about global nuclear non-proliferation efforts. There is a good description of how nuclear weapons are made and how that technology is developed (although intermediate level detail is left out, which is probably not what most people picking up this book are interested in anyway). Key historical events are identified that led to dangerous distribution of nuclear technologies give the book a nice historical context. One slight problem I have is that the title and some parts of the book try to attribute Khan's driving force to his hatred for Western civilization, while it appears that his greed for wealth and power were more integral.
