Past praise for James Mahaffey

Persuasive and based on deep research, Atomic Awakening taught me a great deal.

Persuasive and based on deep research, Atomic Awakening taught me a great deal. --Past praise for James Mahaffey"

The book aids in the understanding of how atomic science is far from the spawn of a wicked weapons program and how nuclear power will shape the twenty-first century. "

Atomic Awakening provides the most complete history of nuclear power, nuclear weapons and nuclear energy development I have ever read in a single book. "

Part detective story, part documentary, part diabolical murder mystery, James Mahaffey s latest non-fiction thriller, Atomic Accidents details the mistakes associated with all sorts of atomic devices, designs and decisions gone awry. As much a pleasure to read as it is instantly educating, Atomic Accidents is essential reading for anyone curious about the inherent intricacies involved with unstable atomic reactors, how they got that way and what should be done about them. Travel back through time and relive the history of the nuclear timeline with the inimitable Dr. Mahaffey as your competent guide. Atomic Accidents belongs at the top of your Books To Read list if you want to know what really happened way back then, now and what will likely happen in the future. Enjoy. "

Atomic Accidents belongs at the top of your Books To Read list if you want to know what really happened way back then, now and what will likely happen in the future. Enjoy.

It s weird and fun, a rather technical compendium of nuclear mishaps that appears to have been tweaked by Ziggy Stardust for maximum weirdness: clueless hunters wandering into caves teeming with radon-222, fervid dreams of nuclear jets, reactors bucking like steeds unused to human contact. Mahaffey, a nuclear engineer, keeps things appropriately dramatic. Truly valuable."

Mahaffey (Atomic Awakening), a former senior research scientist at the Georgia Tech Research Institute, employs his extensive knowledge of nuclear engineering to produce a volume that is by turns alarming, thought-provoking, humorous, and always fascinating.

Mahaffey writes with delightful witty prose. A surprisingly entertaining history of nuclear power.

Reseña del editor:

From the moment radiation was discovered in the late nineteenth century, nuclear science has had a rich history of innovative scientific exploration and discovery, coupled with mistakes, accidents, and downright disasters. Mahaffey, a long-time advocate of continued nuclear research and nuclear energy, looks at each incident in turn and analyzes what happened and why, often discovering where scientists went wrong when analyzing past meltdowns.Every incident has lead to new facets in understanding about the mighty atom and Mahaffey puts forth what the future should be for this final frontier of science that still holds so much promise.
