    1. I read this for a study group; I believe the leader is to be involved in writing an updated version.The book was well written considering its purpose is to educate the layman on the issues of nuclear waste; however, the information is 25 years old. I look forward to an updated edition.

    2. A great overview by the League of Women Voters. They succeed in their effort to present readers with a well rounded view of this touchy subject.
