This book delivers on many fronts: it is well researched and provides in depth information about the superguns that Dr Bull hoped could send small satelites into space, it also delves into his personal life, and takes the reader into the shady and nervous underworld of illegal arms dealings that Gerald Bull wound up in by circumstance.
William Lowther has written with great passion and produced a book that will captivate you and make you want to tell Dr Bull's story to everyone you meet.
Lowther writes well, my colleagues concur. The profound sadness and tragedy of it all was based on genius wrapped in ego and naivete. Brilliant man who doomed himself when he went to bed with Sadam Insane. The CIA and KGB hold Mossad in great esteem. Mossad did not hld Bull in great esteem. What is confusing is that their weapon of choice a sielence berretta 22 calibre was nt used in this case. A larger calibre--believe it was 9mm.-- but short case meaning .380-- MI6 scent.
Good read. First rate writer--held me on tip of my seat.
