    In his shocking and revelatory new work, celebrated journalist William Langewiesche investigates the burgeoning threat of nuclear-weapons production and the inexorable drift of nuclear-weapons technology from the hands of the rich into the hands of the poor. As more unstable and undeveloped nations acquire the ultimate arms, the stakes of state-sponsored nuclear activity have soared to frightening heights. Even more disturbing is the likelihood of such weapons being used by guerrilla non-state terrorists.

    Overall

    Fast-paced and full of hard facts. Demonstrates how little the public knows of the scramble that is taking place as poor countries, extremists, etc., vie for the ultimate weapon and a seat at the table of power.

    Tempered by how much is required to actually weaponize uranium & plutonium and conceal this from the rest of the world.

    Dovetails nicely with "The Nuclear Jihadist" by Douglas Frantz and Catherine Collins. The history of AQ Khan, the Father of the Islamic Bomb.

  • Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

    Story

    In Las Vegas to cover a motorcycle race, Raoul Duke (Thompson) and his attorney Dr. Gonzo (inspired by a friend of Thompson) are quickly diverted to search for the American dream. Their quest is fueled by nearly every drug imaginable and quickly becomes a surreal experience that blurs the line between reality and fantasy. But there is more to this hilarious tale than reckless behavior, for underneath the hallucinogenic facade is a stinging criticism of American greed and consumerism.

    Overall

    Have read this at least 20 times since high school,college, grad school. I couldn't get past the narrator's voice. It kills me to not finish a book but this one was "ejected" after 10 painful minutes.

    Warning: listen to sample before spending $$$!
