A Bit Disappointing
Not a bad book neccesarily. It is just disappointing for someone who has read quite a few books about Iraq. If this were the 1st book I had read about Iraq, it would have been much more interesting. But the book contained no suprises and really no new information versus other books I have read on the subject. I was hoping that a top Iraqi nuclear scientist would have more to say about research in Iraq after 1991, but most of the book was about pre-1991 Iraqi nuclear ambitions, and contained old information, even though the book was written well after Operation Iraqi Freedom had long since started. But it does provide some detail as to just how quickly a nuclear weapons program could be put together and how dangerous people like Saddam Hussein can be with a functional nuclear weapons program.Was this review helpful?

no weapons of mass destruction?
a foil for micheal moore`s rants against america`s war in iraq. a chilling insight into how close saddam was to having a nuclear weapon that he wouldn`t have hesitated to use,either personally or by delivering it to one of the terrorist states that he supported.Was this review helpful?

A thrilling and gripping story of an Iraqi scientist under Saddam Hussein.
The authors have woven with astonishing ease, intricate scientific data and political events spanning decades, into a swift and chilling tale of one caught up in tyranny. The book engaged my mind until the end and left a sense of clarity in my conscience.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
