'It is quite simply, the most carefully researched, scholarly and objective account I have read on the FBM program.' Rear Admiral Robert H. Wertheim
'Since World War II the western world has become adept at designing and managing extremely large and complex technological projects that greatly influence the course of contemporary history. Graham Spinardi's history of the Fleet Ballistic Missile Project provides a pioneering, detailed and engaging history of creativity massively organized.' Tom Hughes, University of Pennsylvania
"Spinardi's book stands as a potent warning against the common tendency to assume that arguments about what is 'technically possible' or 'politically possible' always represent objective truths, rather than constructions that serve someone's interest." Scott D. Sagan, American Political Science Review
