One Second After


osa_1

Just the latest book I’ve delved into. For fans of the TV series Jerico, the story will be somewhat familiar. The story is about an EMP attack on the United States (and a few other countries) that completely takes out the power grid and many modern electronic devices. The story, as seen through the eyes of an ex-military now history professor, focuses on how quickly our society would devolve as a result. A very brutal and sobering look at our dependencies on modern technology juxtaposed against our lack of knowledge in being able to sustain ourselves without them.

Highly recommended read.
