A Tragic Detective Story 12 décembre 1997
Par Leon Keylin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
As the book claims- a minute by minute account of the great tragedy. Being a fan of nuclear psysics this book has taught me a lot not only about physics but of the Russian culture, secretive cover-ups and human suffering. If you want to know everything there is about this Chernobyl and not be bored, then this is the book to get.

Excellent second book to read about Chernobyl 5 mai 2006
Par Cathy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book is an excellent account of the accident. Besides being personally knowlegable, the author quotes NUMEROUS eye-witnesses to the disaster. He goes minute-by-minute (sometimes second-by-second) with virtually all the individuals who were present during the accident, and the politicians who, before and during the accident, made things worse.

However, in order to fully appreciate this book, some prior knowlege is needed. For example, terms like roentgens (a measure of radiation exposure) were never explained in laymen's terms - although even a layman can understand that, as the author points out, an instrument whose scale only goes up to 3.6 roentgens is inadequate to measure radiation in the range of 20,000 roentgens! Thus, most of the most important facts are fairly easy to deduce from context, although a glossery of nuclear terms would have been helpful.

Because the author has such a detailed knowlege of the subject, his account can occasionally loose the forest for the trees. For this reason, I say that it is an EXCELLENT second book to read about the disaster. If you already know the outlines of the events and have had the major terms defined for you (the "forest") by some other book, you cannot find a better book to explore every "tree" in detail. You don't need a physics doctorate, just some basic background.

But, even without any prior knowlege - my situation - the author's writing style is excellent. He captures the drama and the heroism with crackling intensity. He jumps from person to person, all around the plant, but he keeps the context, so the reader can see all these diffenerent groups and individuals working desperately in lethal conditions. And his pacing is excellent. Every person's experiences are described in detail, yet no one's account is sacrificed for anyone else's.

In conclusion, go get some basic background first, then READ THIS BOOK.

An excellent, detailed account of the accident and its cause 8 septembre 1997
Par eclark@mastnet.net - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book describes the accident and events leading to the accident in great detail. Anyone interested in human factors as they relate to loss prevention should find this book an excellent resource. The accident was caused by a long series of very serious human errors. The author also compares the Chernobyl accident to the Three Mile Island accident. In spite of the difference in design of the two nuclear plants, the sequences of events leading to the two accidents were strikingly similar

Amazing picture of a world disaster 18 décembre 1997
Par omill@ewu.edu - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
As a native Russian, I want to thank the author, Grigory Medvedev, for a honest and professional overview of Chernobyl disaster. His incredibly deep insight of human characters who were in touch with Chernobyl fire filled my heart with a great sorrow because they paid a high price of their health or lives. The book made me reevaluate my vision of our 20th century where still exists a nuclear power. Who will be the next victim of whose deadly mistake? Who must step in to shield others? What kind goverment promoted Chernobyl?
This book is essential for anybody to read in order to help all nations in organization of a prevention mechanism against such deadly mistakes.

Very good article, most informative 20 mars 2005
Par G. Cummins - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I read this in 1988 or 1989--well before it was published in the old Soviet Union, likely even an early draft. The copy I read nearly 20 years ago was smuggled out of the Soviet bloc, and circulated around the US nuclear industry, where I used to work. I have since misplaced my originals in moves, and plan to buy this book this week.

The paper brings you to great awareness, and lets you understand what really went on before-hand, as well as the containment of the accident. The paper lists the radiation units in Sieverts, so you have to do some conversions to be able to understand/relate to western standards, exactly what the levels of exposure were. Very harrowing, and makes you have tremendous respect for those who died to secure the reactor site.
