3.66 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: Enjoyable read. Only parts I didn't like were the extreme scientific chapters on "tubealloy." It's fascinating that people worked on this project and had no idea what they were creating. The sheer number of people (75,000) to run Oak Ridge during the creation of the atomic bomb w...

review 1: If I had a choice, I would have given this 2.5 stars, rather than just 2. It was a struggle to finish, but I really did want to read the whole thing. I decided to read this while waiting for another Denise Kiernan book from the library, to get a sense of her writing style. I like...

review 1: This book was very good for what it was, and excellent for what it turned into. As a source of short biographies of each of the signers of the US Constitution, it was interesting. It gave very short(generally 3-4 pages) overviews of who thought what and where they fell in the big...
