"Apocalypse Never is an important and path-breaking book. Tad Daley doesn't just look at why we should strive to eliminate nuclear weapons, he demonstrates how to make it happen. A must-read for anyone seeking to understand how to turn a grand vision into a political reality."
John Podesta, President and CEO, Center for American Progress; White House Chief of Staff to President Bill Clinton
"Finally, a book that explains in common sense language the process for bringing a nuclear weapon–free world from utopia to reality."
Congressman Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, 1997–present
"For those of us who think that freeing the planet from the specter of nuclear holocaust is the most important task before humankind, but also one that's nearly impossible to achieve, Tad Daley has drawn us a roadmap for the journey ahead. It demands no wild leaps of faith, no suspensions of disbelief. Mixing political sobriety with existential urgency and just plain damn good writing, Daley shows us the way."
Harold Meyerson, columnist, The Washington Post and editor-at-large, The American Prospect
"In plain, understandable prose, Apocalypse Never makes a compelling case that the continued existence of nuclear weapons, regardless of their ownership, can lead to catastrophic disasters. A must-read."
Lt. General Robert G. Gard, Jr., U.S. Army, Retired and chair, Center for Arms Control & Non-Proliferation
"My film Apocalypse Now revealed how war corrupts the human soul. But the idea that we can have peace only through 'nuclear deterrence' degrades our entire civilization. With Apocalypse Never, Tad Daley shows us the path of escape."
"Nuclear proliferation, nuclear terrorism, and the dream of nuclear abolition have been studied primarily by experts and policy wonks--the 'nuclear priesthood.' The subject cries out for clarity, relevance, and the ability to engage ordinary citizens. Daley answers this call splendidly." Robert K. Musil, Chairman of the Board, 2020 Vision: Environment, Energy and Security Solutions and author of Hope for a Heated Planet: How Americans are Fighting Global Warming and Building a Better Future
"Tad Daley takes a penetrating look at the threat President Barack Obama calls 'the gravest danger to the American people,' and does so with clarity and integrity. Apocalypse Never, details how the failed policies of the past have made the nuclear threat worse and how the only real solution is to move steadily towards eliminating the only weapons that can destroy the world. We would be wise to listen."
Joseph Cirincione, president, The Ploughshares Fund and author of Bomb Scare: The History and Future of Nuclear Weapons
