Most Dangerous by Steve Sheinkin

Most Dangerous: Daniel Ellsberg and the Secret History of the Vietnam War (Bccb Blue Ribbon Nonfiction Book Award (Awards))

Steve Sheinkin has done it again. His book on Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon papers is a great story, and a timely one. While he writes for a younger audience, there is nothing simple or simplified about the content or writing of this book, and I tore through it as if I’d never heard of Daniel Ellsberg before.

We watched All the President’s Men a few weeks before we watched it, and the two were a great pairing.

All The President's Men

I hear The Post is excellent too, so we may watch that next.

And if you haven’t read Sheinkin’s other books, Bomb is my favorite.

Bomb: The Race to Build-and Steal-the World's Most Dangerous Weapon The Port Chicago 50: Disaster, Mutiny, and the Fight for Civil Rights Undefeated: Jim Thorpe and the Carlisle Indian School Football Team
