Editorial Reviews

Los Angeles Times
“The Warning is a book you must read. Not because it is 'good for you.' Not because it will build your social conscience. Not because it's topical. Not because it's a thriller. No, every educated American ought to read this account of 'what really happened' at Three Mile Island because this narrative represents the best in nonfiction, in virtuoso reporting…If you read no other book in the next five years, by all means read…The Warning!”
Studs Terkel
“This book is as explosive as the explosion it warns us about. It is as suspenseful as a good novel.”
Jack Anderson
“A ripping thriller, made more compelling by the fact that it is true.”
