About the Book
In the first definitive, comprehensive account of the Fukushima nuclear disaster as it played out in real time, Lochbaum, Lyman, and Stranahan tell this harrowing story about a crisis that continues to unfold today. An intensely dramatic saga—including good intentions and bad, sacrifice and avarice, government ineptitude and corporate influence—it is also the story of the myth of nuclear safety and the heavy price paid by the people of Japan when reality shattered it. Importantly, the authors address whether or not a Fukushima-scale nuclear disaster could happen in the United States—with sobering (but actionable) conclusions.
Critics are Raving
Kirkus Reviews: "A gripping, suspenseful page-turner finely crafted to appeal both to people familiar with the science and those with only the barest inkling of how nuclear power works."
Los Angeles Times: "No one with an interest in the present and future of nuclear power in the United States should miss it...An indispensable reminder of the nuclear power industry's failure to learn from the past."
