Three and a half. Really great information, really interesting, not the most readable. My dad worked in Oak Ridge from the time I was two until he retired. And I knew generally what went on there, or I thought I did. Turns out I didn't, not really. I had no idea how quickly the city had sprung up from nothing for the sole purpose of enriching uranium for the bomb. So I was fascinated with all the information, and enjoyed talking to my dad about it all. My only complaint is the writing was a little so-so; repetitive, overly-unnecesarily-detailed. It could have been a lot shorter and not lost anything. I recommend.
