This book is awesome! It's so interesting! This book goes from the very beginning of the scientific and theoretical foundations of the atomic bomb, including a study of some of the people key in its development. It includes a full rounded story of science, politics, and ethics throughout the writing. While it is non-fiction, it reads like a science fiction thriller. I loved this book eventhough it was a text for a college class.
