This book describes many significant experiences over a period of about 50 years in the field of nuclear power–generated electricity. The first 25 years deal with the development, design, safety, manufacturing, licensing, and operations of light water reactors and particularly of General Electric (GE) boiling water reactors. That was also the time when perceptions about nuclear power changed and no new orders for nuclear power were forthcoming. The subsequent 25 years cover the formation and operation of engineering/management firm S. Levy Incorporated (SLI), which provided consulting services to the entire nuclear industry.
