The Amateur MarriageHe's Just Not That Into You

Book: The Radioactive Boy Scout, Ken Silverstein

This book is interesting but a dry read. I really could do without the chapters on breeder reactors and the half-life of plutonium, but I suppose they highlight how incredible and risky this 15 year old boy’s dedication to his talent and hobby was.

But, at a time (read: my entire life) when I’m feeling very unfocused, reading about a boy who shows almost frightening dedication to his craft isn’t what I need. This boy goes to great lengths, at great personal risk, to meet his goal (granted his goal was to make a nuclear reactor but still) and meanwhile I have trouble even writing an email to a friend.
