From the back cover: Already nuclear energy affects us all - the light we use, the hospital treatment we receive. Before long, it will revolutionize transport. 

In fact, in the not-too-distant future, the harnessed power of the hydrogen bomb- if it does not destroy us all first - can make this earth a paradise. 

Nuclear energy is a subject we should, indeed must, understand and in this book, a well-known writer on scientific subjects gives us the know-how. 

Starting with the discovery of radium by Madame Curie in the 1890's, step by step he takes the story of atomic energy to the end of our century - when quite fantastic changes will have taken place.
