    The biggest problem that I had with this book was that it was really dry Medvedev clearly knows his stuff, but it was easy to get lost in the facts and figures Still, it was an interesting look into the Chernobyl disaster and its effects Overall, a good read for those interested in the science behind Chernobyl.

    This book is very technical, very dry and full of figures and this is a good thing If you want a very insightful and in depth view to what happened in Chernobyl in 1986, the background and aftermath of the disaster and its effects in Ukraine, Soviet Union and around the world, this is a book well worth reading The Legacy of Chernobyl was published in 1990, so the information is a little bit dated in some respects Nevertheless, I can highly recommend this book for those readers who want well This book is very technical, very dry and full of figures and this is a good thing If you want a very insightful and in depth view to what happened in Chernobyl in 1986, the background and aftermath of the disaster and its effects in Ukraine, Soviet Union and around the world, this is a book well worth reading The Legacy of Chernobyl was published in 1990, so the information is a little bit dated in some respects Nevertheless, I can highly recommend this book for those readers who want well researched facts and figures instead of an entertaining yarn

    I really liked the book, but I was looking for somethingcontemporary and I was fooled by the Kindle publication date 2012 vs the actual publication date 1992, I think Still, a very nice recount of the Chernobyl meltdown and a good primer on nuclear energy Sometimes I felt that the author had an axe to grind with the Soviet Union, but given the time in which this was written and the poor way they handled the accident , I guess I can understand that.
