Review: Set Phasers on Stun: And Other True Tales of Design, Technology, and Human Error

User Review  - Larry - Goodreads

A very dark set of true stories where poor technology design resulted in terrible accidents... often fatal. These are cautionary tales, not bedtime stories. Read full review

Review: Set Phasers on Stun: And Other True Tales of Design, Technology, and Human Error

User Review  - Philip Hollenback - Goodreads

This was a better book than the Atomic Chef (although I also enjoyed that one). There were a few interesting disaster stories in this book that I had not heard of before - such as the grounding of seven destroyers on the coast of California in 1923. Read full review
