    A very, very good nonfiction book. I liked it because it was nonfiction and there are very little nonfiction books on the list. This book is very well written and the author got the nonfiction book aspect just right, mixed with a tiny bit of a story. It actually showed you the radio broadcast’s exact words, which very few nonfiction books do. If you like nonfiction books, this is the book for you!
