This book provides everything we need to understand nuclear power. Written in easy-to-follow prose, it frankly describes the role that nuclear power could and should play in meeting our electrical energy needs. It disambiguates nuclear controversy from all sides of the nuclear debate and discusses the potential of energy production from other available fuels. It authenticates the energy policy decisions that each nation must make to address reaching the peak of oil supplies, while effectively dealing with society's increasing energy consumption needs and associated environmental consequences. The authors are very astute at explaining the complexity of nuclear issues and reducing them to general terms for reader comprehension. They dissect how accidents have occurred and outline how accidents can be avoided in the future. They are well versed in the special problems of nuclear engineering and use their expertise to show how nuclear energy can be produced safely by examining nuclear plant operations and the potential for accidents to occur. They provide the necessary background to really grasp the reality of nuclear energy and the vital elements of nuclear safety systems that prevent accidents. They discuss radioactive elements, including their decay properties and provide good background information on the basic physics involved in actual practice. [via]
