Book by Kiernan Denise

Críticas:

"A fresh take on the secret city built in the mountains of Tennessee as part of the Manhattan Project during World War II... An inspiring account of how people can respond with their best when called upon."

"This intimate and revealing glimpse into one of the most important scientific developments in history will appeal to a broad audience."

"Kiernan snugly fits original research into the creation story of Oak Ridge and should engage readers interested in both women's history and the background of the atomic bomb."

"Denise Kiernan recreates, with cinematic vividness and clarity, the surreal Orwell-meets-Margaret Atwood environment of Oak Ridge as experienced by some of the women who were there: secretaries, technicians, a nurse, a statistician, a leak pipe inspector, a chemist, and a janitor."--DailyBeast.com

""The Girls of Atomic City" is the best kind of nonfiction: marvelously reported, fluidly written, and a remarkable story about a remarkable group of women who performed clandestine and vital work during World War II. Denise Kiernan recreates this forgotten chapter in American history in a work as meticulous and brilliant as it is compulsively readable."--Karen Abbott, New York Times bestselling author of Sin in the Second City

"A lively story about the tens of thousands of women who made the bomb - from the power-plant janitor struggling each day through the mud to the exiled physicist in Sweden - The Girls of Atomic City offers a bottom-up history revealing that the atomic bomb was not simply the product of J. Robert Oppenheimer's genius, but also of the work of women at every level of education and class."--BrainPickings.org

I love these kinds of books, and this is a great one....It s a phenomenal story. --Jon Stewart, The Daily Show"
