A wonderful bio of everyone's favorite admiral. If you know the name, you have to get this book.

This is an excellent insider account of Rickover's efforts and accomplishments. Dr. Rockwell really makes the history come alive.

This is a book for Engineers, Scientist, and program managers who believes 'Quality saves money' and 'Quality is the only way that engineering should follow'. If I read this book earlier, I will be a better engineer in the past few years. The author has made me understand that Rickover really is very different and have caused significant impact on human civilization. Now I know where those quality assurance concepts come from. It is recommended that this book should be used as a reference book for all Engineering student in a class called 'Engineering Discipline 101'.
