3.0 out of 5 stars A strange book
I was given this a long time ago (when it was first printed?).

I hope I never need the information in it (because that would mean we were having a nuclear war).

It has a lot of tables of data, on things like comparing ranges at which metals vapourise from different sizes of nuclear detonations.

It has a lot of poor illustrations, there are...

4.0 out of 5 stars Balanced, rational and helpful, 8 Sep 2011

This review is from: Surviving Doomsday (Paperback)
I bought this booklet when it was published, over thirty years ago. I read it several times and as a defence analyst,used it. Unlike most more recent publications about the threat from nuclear/biological/chemical attacks, this book was written by a knowledgeable expert at a time when a nuclear war was very possible. It deals with issues calmly and rationally. It outlines the effects of weapons of mass destruction and explains how to deal with the probable consequences of their use. There is no sensationalism, nor is it complacent. Although the illustrations are basic, they are more than adequate. Information is presented clearly. The author describes simple, sensible, practical and affordable measures one can take to substantially improve one's survival prospects. My only criticism of it is that the author gets carried away at the end - it contains an unnecessary, debatable and rather lurid speculative description of a full scale all-out nuclear war; defence analysts use to call this `spasm', the worse possible scenario and highly unlikely. But despite this, I recommend the booklet. Although the likelihood of such a disaster is now very low indeed, it's still worth reading.

I hope I never need the information in it (because that would mean we were having a nuclear war).

It has a lot of tables of data, on things like comparing ranges at which metals vapourise from different sizes of nuclear detonations.

It has a lot of poor illustrations, there are no photos in it, which could have made it much better (or, in some cases, worse).

The size is about A4, but there are only 64 pages, my copy is printed on glossy paper.
