Staff Reviews


Command and Control is the perfect non-fiction. Eric Schlosser weaves together two unbelievable histories with page-turning precision, taking us down the dark and winding road of the United States development and handling of man's most powerful weapon, and how all of that history plays out one day in Damascus, Arkansas. This is not a technical manual, it is a fast-paced tale of government and military, man and machine, safety and inevitability. I could not put it down.
