At times the technical descriptions can become overwhelming, but these are short extracts which serve to remind us what an amazing feet of technical advancement that these people accomplished in such a short period of time.
The book is split in to chapters detailing the major milestones that even people with a brief knowledge of the historic period would recognise, which also helps to build tension as the unknowing protagonists believe they are in a race to develop the bomb before the Nazi's.
I would not hesitate to recommend this book to anyone in an effort to show what mankind are capable of in it finest hour and worst hour, it just so happens that these were minutes apart.
