5.0 out of 5 stars Tunguska = Enigma, 12 Nov. 2010
This review is from: The Tunguska Mystery (Astronomers' Universe) (Hardcover)
The Tunguska Mystery (Astronomers' Universe)

Vladimir Rubtsov's book, "The Tunguska Mystery," distills almost a hundred years of speculation and scientific inquiry into a well-written and understandable account of the explosion that has all but defied explanation. His perceptions and obvious painstaking research allow the reader to consider most, if not all the facts from an interdisciplinary probe into this mysterious event. This modern quest for scientific truth leads the reader through the chronological events which led to the enigma that violently pummeled an entire area of central Siberia, leaving trees flattened and windows broken as far as 200km from its immense shockwave.

It is a quality hardcover book, printed on academic textbook quality paper and a fast read with smooth language. This is a "must read" for the lay person and scientist alike, or anyone seriously interested in learning about the event. It asks us to try to understand something that could happen again, only next time, it could happen over a populated area. Then, it will be too late to begin to ask the questions that Rubtsov asks us to consider now. Excellent. 5 stars!
