About this title


Could anything be more terrifying than walking right up to a ticking bomb? Few of us would willingly face such danger, and yet the brave persons who succeed in defusing these weapons save dozens, maybe hundreds, of lives. What are their jobs like? How do they feel when they're called to duty? What tactics do they use to complete the job -- and maximize their chances of staying alive? A former operative of the bomb disposal unit provides an insider's view of the vocation, its history, training, equipment, and forensics. includes examples of celebrated rescues.
