What People are Saying About This

Leonard A. Cole

The author presents a forceful narrative about one of the ranking technology/policy fiascoes of our time: the tortuous efforts to construct and activate the Shorham, Long Island, nuclear power plant....Readers will shudder about the colossal policy misjudgments that went into the Shoreham nuclear power project. But the book also provides prescriptions to prevent a similar mess from happening again. It should be required reading for government and company officials who have anything to do with technology involving large-scale risk.
