""Making a Real Killing" is a model for making sense of the Cold War Atomic West. . . . It combines personal stories, excellent Cold War historical context, simplified technical explanations of complicated nuclear science, labor history, and corporate history into a compelling narrative. . . . "Making a Real Killing" should find its place not only alongside other recent atomic histories, but also next to the best books on understanding the American West of the last half-century."
