Read in January, 2009

I'd never heard of this book, before I sought it out. I'd become fascinated by nuclear power and nuclear weapons. The fact that we humans can manipulate matter on that level is still astounding to me and a tribute to the scientific method. The fact that we (americans) dropped a bomb on people instantly wiping thousands of people out of existence, while we suffered virtually nothing has to be one of the biggest moral questions of our age. I wanted to know if anyone had written a book about surviving the bomb, and turned out that yes someone besides me was curious what that was like.
