A horrifying look at the aftermath of the atomic bomb in both Hiroshima and Nagasaki based on hundreds of interviews with survivors and family members. It's unfortunate that some doubt has been placed on small parts of the research, casting a cloud over the entire book. In fact, Henry Holt and Company has ceased publishing the book.

However, even if only 75% of this book is true, it's well-worth reading. It's just too easy to gloss over the moments, days, weeks and years of consequences of the use of a nuclear weapon.
