I remember hearing of Chernobyl when it happened, but there was little information except for warnings about radiation levels in Europe. This is a fascinating story of all the little and big things that went wrong to cause the disaster. Even more interesting are the approaches taken, and the manpower used to remediate the site. Although I was unable to keep track of all the Russian and Ukrainian names, I was still able to fully appreciate the magnitude of what happened.

Well researched book about what global warming really means going forward. Very interesting and scary facts, which most people know nothing about. Made me want to read more. There is some repetition in the book, but the repetition was appropriate given the different contexts. Have been recommending this book to others, especially when the topic of climate change comes up.

Well researched for weather buffs

The author's research provided some interesting perspectives on weather and the atmosphere. I found some of the historical and mythic oriented chapters to provide context I wasn't previously aware of. On the other hand, at times some of the chapters were far too technical for a weather novice and used too much jargon for my liking. The narrator was clear and easy to understand and listen to.

Almost could not stop listening.
