    Extremely urgent danger, leisurely response

    Although most people assume that the nuclear danger to America lessened with the end of the Cold War, the threat of nuclear terrorism is actually increasing. In this book, Graham Allison carefully explains the threats we face, and outlines a realistic strategy to cope with them. The book is extraordinarily frightening, a nightmare that one cannot wake up from. And yet, Dr. Allison recounts how some of the worst dangers materialized when the Soviet Union dissolved, and how a combination of iron will, patience, and enlightened self-interest of American and Russian leaders resolved those specific dangers. Let's hope that our leaders and citizens begin giving nuclear terrorism the attention it deserves.

    First Rate

    If you are on the fence about whether or not the Jihadists will use a nuclear device, or if there is a good probability of them attaining, or having already attained such a device, this book will push you over it. Succinct and backed up with pure facts, it's a compelling read and very a convincing presentation.

    Informative and very interesting

    This book was fascinating, even to someone with no previous knowledge of the subject. The theme of each chapter is simple and logically follows the last one. Graham Allison's only bias is in favor of this great nation's survival, and he talks about threats most people assumed were gone with the fall of the Soviet Union. I finished this book in less than a week and it was very informative and interesting.

    Is nuclear terrorism our greatest fear?

    Rich detail paints a terrifying picture. But other weapons of terrorism, especially biological weapons, are easier to come by and easier to deliver than nuclear weapons and cannot be overlooked.
