This is the book that when I first read it, it unsettled me so deeply that I had trouble sleeping. I understood for the first time what living under MAD must have been like. Every news story about war, politics, disasters made me wonder if this would the one that pushed the world into destruction.

And the book is still far less depressing than this weekend has been.
