Reviews

"Anyone who has ever wondered what the neighborhood geek might be brewing up in his backyard should read The Radioactive Boy Scout. This is a riveting and disturbing story about the power of the teenage mind-and the sparks that fly when a nuclear family melts down."
-David Kushner, author of Masters of Doom

"
Amazing . . . unsettling . . . should come with a warning: Don't buy [this book] for any obsessive kids in the family. It might give them ideas."
-Rocky Mountain News

"An astounding story . . . [Silverstein] has a novelist's eye for meaningful detail and a historian's touch for context."
-The San Diego Union-Tribune

"Alarming . . . The story fascinates from start to finish."
-Outside

"Enthralling . . . [It] has the quirky pleasures of a Don DeLillo novel or an Errol Morris documentary. . . . An engaging portrait of a person whose life on America's fringe also says something about mainstream America."
-Minneapolis Star Tribune


"[Silverstein] does a fabulous job of letting David [Hahn's] surrealistic story tell itself. . . . But what's truly amazing is how far Hahn actually got in the construction of his crude nuclear reactor."
-The Columbus Dispatch
