5.0 out of 5 stars Insightful, refreshing, entertaining ..., 25 Jun 2014
This book is incredibly well researched. The author has the rare gift of being able to present sometimes quite complex scientific and engineering concepts in understandable terms, without dumbing down the subject. Again and again he manages to pinpoint the design flaw or operator action where things went wrong and explains why, with deep insight.

Reading this book at times feels as if you are listening to a bunch of retired nuclear engineers talking shop over a few glasses of beer. It is full of well told anecdotes, which makes it eminently readable, and it is obvious that many of these come from first hand sources rather than being a regurgitation of old legends.

Having read the book leaves me with a feeling that human ingenuity is only surpassed by human stupidity. With a bit of Murphy added in.

5.0 out of 5 stars BRILLIANT READ,, 1 April 2014
By 
BLUE FISH (UNITED KINGDOM) - See all my reviews
Its about radiation and how mistakes, accidents and disasters together with scientific exploration and indepth analysis of each incident, what happened and why? This book is the final frontier of discovering what the future holds for radiation, that held so much promise. Its a very intense book and I learnt a lot about atomic accidents and why they happen. Too often because scientists analyze past meltdowns wrongly.
