Famed investigative journalist Eric Schlosser digs deep to uncover secrets about the management of America's nuclear arsenal. A groundbreaking account of accidents, near misses, extraordinary heroism, and technological breakthroughs, Command and Control explores the dilemma that has existed since the dawn of the nuclear age: How do you deploy weapons of mass destruction without being destroyed by them? That question has never been resolved - and Schlosser reveals how the combination of human fallibility and technological complexity still poses a grave risk to mankind.

This is hands down one of the best books I've experienced in a while. The narration is good, very clearly read and what a bombshell story (hehe). I already know I will re-read or re-listen to this again. There are not that many pieces of literature that I have experienced that have value as great as this one. I love books but I haven't had the time available to find gems like this one lately, don't miss it. #Audible1
