Picks and Pans Review: Nuclear War: What's in It for You?

UPDATED 05/17/1982 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 05/17/1982 at 01:00 AM EDT

by Ground Zero

Far less eloquently argued and philosophically involving, but more accessible, this volume by a Washington-based disarmament group pursues essentially the same thesis as Schell's. It is too chatty, including such chapter headings as "The Good News Is You Will Be Killed Instantly: The Immediate Effects of Nuclear War." But its diagrams and maps are helpful, and its language is straightforward; a glossary and question-answer section are included. It is also much cheaper, for those who don't want to spend a lot just to learn about the end of the world. (Pocket Books, $2.95)
