I was intrigued by the title of the book. I was disappointed by the contents. This book is high on fear factors and prejudice and low on verifiable facts. Far from downplaying the risks of complex physical and chemical plants I still feel that this books lacks the data required for a serious piece of work and instead takes the easy route of scaremongering.
Since I prefer to back up my feelings with verifiable facts I checked out the author on the number of citations on publications in the scientific literature. Unfortunately these coincided with my own impressions. Very few references to this work, or any other scientific publication co-authored by this author, are made.
If you're afraid of nuclear reactors and DNA this book could become one of your Bibles. If you prefer argued scientific facts this book might not be the bed time reading you like.

This book was inaccurate, wrong, and useless on every front. The author made so many technical errors in subjects that I understood, that I could only conclude that he made them in every area, which reduced my confidence in the book to zero. Additionally, the book is boring, an unforgivable sin, given the inherent excitement of the subject material.
