Probably the best book on the Tunguska event in English, 27 Jan 2005
To tell the truth, initially I (being in Tunguska research since 1980s) did not think that I could find anything interesting for me in the book. Indeed it is a popular book, and moreover written by a non-member of Tunguska research community. So I expected just some well-known general (and often distorted) stuff, which I am already tired to read. But when I began to read, I couldn't stop! Moreover I found new intriguing info possibly related with the first trip to the Tunguska epicenter!
Fortunately there are just a few shortcomings and mistakes, unlike in a typical publication on Tunguska, especially in English. If the book was published in Russian, I would call it as a good one. And in my opinion it is the best book on Tunguska in English.
