"Uranium" - the rock that shaped the world

Author Tom Zoellner is speaking and signing copies of his new book, "Uranium: War, Energy and the Rock That Shaped the World" at the Changing Hands Bookstore in Tempe tonight.

Zoellner looks primarily at the rock rather than the nuclear weapons or power plants that almost every other author pursues.

The book is drawing favorable reviews across the country. The review at the Christian Science Monitor was particularly enjoyable. It quotes Zoellner as saying, “In this rock we can see the best and worst of mankind.”

  1. I look forward to reading this one! His book The Heartless Stone is a fantastic read about the mining, distribution, and marketing of diamonds.
