MEDIA REVIEWS
A lucid and fascinating explanation of the science that allows us to think clearly about nuclear Iran.--Walter Isaacson, author of Steve Jobs and Einstein: His Life and Universe
Nuclear Iran is part scientific primer, part history with a dash of policy analysis. Here the reader can come to grips--as best as we nonscientific souls can--with the math behind the concept of critical mass in nuclear fission. There [Bernstein] offers a brief but illuminating portrait of Gernot Zippe, the eccentric Austrian-German engineer, captured by the Soviets during World War II, who pioneered the centrifuge model later sold by the Pakistani proliferator A.Q. Khan to North Korea and Iran. Bernstein also details the history of the Iranian nuclear program, beginning with its origins under the Shah. Letting the facts speak for themselves, Bernstein makes it very hard to maintain that the mullahs have peaceful intentions... [I] loved the book. A reader doesn't need to master every equation to get the conceptual gist, and anyone who publicly opines about Iran would do well to spend an afternoon learning from Jeremy Bernstein.--Sohrab Ahmari"Wall Street Journal" (10/03/2014)
