    I picked this graphic novel up purely because I needed a book about technology for a reading challenge, not a topic I naturally gravitate towards in my reading I certainly don t think I would have come across this particular book without that nudge This is a fantastic discovery for me, the power of graphic novels to tell a story like this in a way that doesn t feel dumbed down, yet neither is it obfuscated in dry facts and dense prose For readers who shy away from reading non fiction I thin I picked this graphic novel up purely because I needed a book about technology for a reading challenge, not a topic I naturally gravitate towards in my reading I certainly don t think I would have come across this particular book without that nudge This is a fantastic discovery for me, the power of graphic novels to tell a story like this in a way that doesn t feel dumbed down, yet neither is it obfuscated in dry facts and dense prose For readers who shy away from reading non fiction I think this is a perfect introduction to the fascinating story of The Manhattan Project It presents the science, history and ethical considerations around the development of the first atomic bomb in a way you can digest in one sitting The quotes come directly from source documents where pos...

    More than a history of the atomic bomb, Trinity is also a primer on the physics and history behind nuclear fission, and simultaneously a social history of the Manhattan Project Fetter Vorm is a storyteller and an educator, seamlessly weaving the story of Oppenheimer and General Groves collaborative project in the desert of New Mexico not too far from where I grew up with the history of science The above panel likens the work of the Manhattan Project with the Greek myth of Prometheus sta More than a history of the atomic bomb, Trinity is also a primer on the physics and history behind nuclear fission, and simultaneously a social history of the Manhattan Project Fetter Vorm is a storyteller and an educator, seamlessly weaving the story of Oppenheimer and General Groves collaborative project in the desert of New Mexico not too far from where I grew up with the history of science The above panel likens the work of the Manhattan Project with the Greek myth of Prometheus stated many times before this book one of Oppenheimer s biographies is called American Prometheus You can see ...

    Prior to this book I had never read a Graphic Novel I will admit to even being a bit of a book snob, the type who thought Graphic Novels were just glorified comic books, and not real books I read literature, I read 1000 page classics Graphic novels Pshaw But this book has changed my opinion of Graphic Novels I didn t know they could be this good I didn t know they could be this emotional I didn t know they could be this educational It could be that I am going through a reading binge on Prior to this boo...

    I have two history degrees and have taught social studies for 19 years I ve become a huge fan of non fiction graphic books and graphic novels the past few years because they draw in reluctant readers in my classroom But here s the thing about TRINITY the book is better than a lot of adult works on the subject, and I think it comes down to the riveting pictures and writing style of the author.TRINITY is impeccably researched and does a splendid job of retelling the story of the Manhattan Proje I have two history degrees and have taught social studies for 19 years I ve become a huge fan of non fiction graphic books and graphic novels the past few years because they draw in reluctant readers in my class...

    A really good, if quick, history of the development of the atomic bomb I don t have much in the way of prior knowledge here, and you don t really need it There are a few names that are casually thrown out without much, if any, explanation, but those moments were few and...

    Inspired by a breakfast with friends conversation, i decided to read this one now I m glad i read it.I m tempted to give Barefoot Gen another shot And i m tempted to read at least a couple books from Fetter Vorm s lists of source material and further reading.

    This was absolutely fantastic I ve had a general idea of the history and the horrors of the atom bomb, but this went into detail in an informative and simple way It briefly went over some history of war and it s escalation It had a brief history on the build up to the science, chemistry, physics of how fission of an atom was discovered, how it works, and how it translates into a bomb It was an info dump without feeling like an info dump It was really well conveyed.Then it goes on about some This was absolutely fantastic I ve had a general idea of the history and the horrors of the atom bomb, but this went into detail in an informative and simple way It briefly went over some history of war and it s escalation It had a brief history on the build up to the science, chemistry, physics of how fission of an atom was discovered, how it works, and how it translates into a bomb It was an info dump without feeling like an info dump It was really well conveyed.Then it goes on about some of the strategies of the US military, how everything was massively built up Oak Ridge, TN had the largest building in the world fo...
