Summary
  • "A renowned broadcast journalist reports that a major cyberattack on America's power grid is not only possible but likely, that it would be unimaginably devastating and that the United States is shockingly unprepared."--NoveList
  • Imagine a blackout lasting not days, but weeks or months and affecting tens of millions of people over several states. Koppel believes that a well-designed attack on just one of the nation's three electric power grids could cripple much of our infrastructure-- and in the age of cyberwarfare, a laptop has become the only necessary weapon. And the federal government, while well prepared for natural disasters, has no plan for the aftermath of an attack on the power grid. How, Koppel asks, will ordinary civilians survive?
