Just finished this little book last night:

In the foyer of the public library building where I work, they keep a rack of free used paperback books. I sometimes grab one that looks interesting.

A long time ago, I saw the 1964 movie based on this book, with Henry Fonda. From what I remember of that movie, it did good service to the book. There was probably no other way to solve the problem than what the American president did.

I enjoyed the book, but it could have easily been three times as long as it was. Perhaps more technical details weren't available to the authors at the time. They made their point though, to be sure.

Check out Hack's blog, too. He writes good.
