Bomb: The Race to Build-and Steal-the Worlds Most Dangerous Weapon What's Up With the Title?

By Steve Sheinkin

What's Up With the Title?

The full title sure is a doozy: Bomb: The Race to Build—And Steal—The World's Most Dangerous Weapon. You can really see Sheinkin's textbook-writing roots shining through with this lengthy designation. Or maybe he added that second part so you could mention the title in the airport without drawing the ire of the TSA…we'll never know. Either way, the title is a direct reflection of the content of the book. In fact, you could think of the title as a super brief summary.
