As one of the authors of this book I may be a little biased, but this is the only comprehensive text explaining the complete nuclear fuel cycle, from ore to waste, on the market. With the UK finally committing to replacing its aging nuclear capacity with what will amount to more than £100 Billion pounds worth of investment, more people will be needed to come into the industry and get up to speed. There is no better source of information on the market. Each chapter was written by established experts and international speakers and presents clear factual explanations which can be understood by anyone wanting to move beyond political positions to establish facts. As most or the authors worked with the industry for most of their careers, and most are now retired, I do not foresee another text coming along that can compete on breadth and depth of coverage.

Good verbal description of the fuel cycle with each chapter concentrating on different portions. Each chapter is written by a separate author with experience in that area/portion. The style is more "verbal/written" than "textbook/equations". The book is also not there to blow the trumpet for nuclear...it is there to educate and provide the facts (although given the background of the authors there is a little bias).

A little pricey (I thought) for what is is...but I guess the market is not huge.

Excellent book on the British Nuclear Fuel Cycle. Peter was one of the greats that worked at British Nuclear Fuels Ltd (BNFL).

The full 5 presentation series based on the book is available on youtube with kindle download link. In youtube search type "Nuclear Fuel cycle Peter Wilson"
