Write The First Customer Review

When he discovers that his father worked on missiles for a defense contractor, Jeff Porter is inspired to revisit America s atomic past and our fallen heroes, in particular J. Robert Oppenheimer, the father of the atomic bomb. The result, "Oppenheimer Is Watching Me," takes readers back to the cold war, when men in lab coats toyed with the properties of matter and fears of national security troubled our sleep. With an eye for strange symmetries, Porter traces how one panicky moment shaped the lives of a generation."
