    Uranium is a common element in the earth's crust and the only naturally occurring mineral with the power to end all life on the planet. After World War II, it reshaped the global order---whoever could master uranium could master the world. Marie Curie gave us hope that uranium would be a miracle panacea, but the Manhattan Project gave us reason to believe that civilization would end with apocalypse.

    C. Schmidt says: "GREAT book, awful narration"
    "Most fascinating documentary, learned a lot"
    Overall

    I bought this book for my brother, a science guy, then I thought I’d read it too. It was amazing! The author truly gave his all into this work. He shares his knowledge as if we were friends and sipping coffee together. I learned so very much about the history of not only America, but of Germany, Africa, Russia and Austria as well. His interweaving of peoples personal lives was intriguing. My rating lacked getting a five star because it did move fast for me.

    Hennie Comfort is 86 and has lived in the mountains of Middle Swan, Colorado since before it was Colorado. Nit Spindle is just 17 and newly married. She and her husband have just moved to the high country in search of work. It's 1936 and the depression has ravaged the country and Nit and her husband have suffered greatly. Hennie notices the young woman loitering near the old sign outside of her house that promises "Prayers For Sale".

    Kathy says: "Great book"
    "Excellent! Really strengthen my spirit!"
    Overall

    The characters impressed me tremendously and taught me forgiveness on a surreal compassionate level. The moral especially strengthen my marriage to a drinking man. The author interview provided to be a great closer, as I was sad to have the book end.
