A punchy polemic that spends its first four chapters making the case for nuclear; another five knocking down alternatives and any objections; and a conclusion setting out how to make the vision a reality. It is unfortunate, but probably unavoidable, that it gets progressively less convincing as it goes on ... The book ultimately leaves a sense that although nuclear power can be part of the answer to the climate threat, it cannot be the silver bullet.
A rational if somewhat unlikely strategy to reverse global warming using current technology and without self-denial ... the facts are certainly on their side ...

A reasonable argument directed at a lay audience, many of whom have already made up their minds.
