Rickover Effect: How One Man Made a Difference Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A candid and incisive portrait of Admiral Hyman Rickover which takes the reader behind the "zirconium curtain" that protected Rickover's nuclear program from outside interference to observe momentous and highly charged personal interactions that made Rickover both hated and admired.

Book News Annotation:

Admiral Hyman Rickover was the father of America's nuclear navy. This book describes in detail and with wit the obstacles the Admiral had to overcome in the development of the first nuclear submarine in the 1950s, and it reveals the difficult, stubborn man whose single-minded drive made his relationship with the Navy volatile and contentious.
