This is a no-holes barred comparison between nuclear power and other forms of power generation. The author makes a convincingly strong case that nuclear power is the best form of mass power generation available. If you want a book filled with politically-correct statements and comparisons, this book is NOT for you. Attimes, the author is just plain brutal when talking about anti-nuclear activists. Unfortuantely, this is exactly the position that we need to be in when dealing with the extremist environmentalists. This book explains why alternative energy will never be suitable to provide the demands that our society demands, why 'conservation' will not work, and why the anti-nuclear arguments have no environmental case against nuclear power.
