Review:


"In this memoir, Seabody describes his work for Franklin Roosevelt and each of the nine presidents who have followed him. Topics include Seabody's role in the discovery and development of plutonium in the Manhattan Project, his signing of the Limited Test Ban Treaty, and his service as the chairman of the US Atomic Energy Commission for over a decade. Includes extensive selections from the author's diaries and numerous b&w photographs."--SciTech Book News
