A truly terrifying book that I is without question a must read for all. highly recommended
The subject of this book is really very interesting. He has had an interesting and varied career deep within the American apparatus behind the planning and organisation of the nuclear arsenal. He makes a compelling argument for why the oft quoted defense of "deterrence" for holding vast nuclear arsenal is a bit of a tautology.
However, the narrator is hideous. Truly awful. Utterly and totally unlistenable to. At several points, it is completely indistinguishable from a very poor synthesized voice. In fact, it's probably worse as he doesn't seem to be aware of punctuation or what it's for.
A shame, I have had to download the book to read and return the audio book purely because the narration is so awful
This is not really anything new in this and not as well written as the dead hand.
The narrator is awful - sounds like Google maps gps guidance.
