WHY vs WHY: Nuclear Power

Barry Brook

Ian Lowe

In WHY vs WHY™ Nuclear Power, we pit two opposing activists & writers against each other, Barry Brook & Ian Lowe. They go head-to-head, each presenting 7 key reasons why you should say yes/no to nuclear power.

After each author presents his arguments, his opponent tries to tear each of them apart, both in the book & on this website (with further rebuttals). For readers, we aim to leave nothing unanswered.

Barry & Ian are good writers with strong, well-argued opinions. Who will you agree with? Will one of them change your mind? Read the book & find out.

In WHY vs WHY™, you get both sides, so you can decide for yourself… The books are also a great tool to help you convince others, people who don’t see the light the way you do. Buy them a copy!

 

“…an innovative new series…” – Paul Comrie-Thomson, ABC Radio National

More about the author

“I think it’s a terrific idea…It’s a series of small but perfectly formed books…it’s a very civil little series of books…  a good way of presenting these sort of issues.”

“…a balanced approach to controversial issues…”

“I like the way this is presented… a very helpful little series…”

“Each side gets to make its case and rebut its opponent… There’s no name-calling or irrational ranting, just the main arguments, pro and con.”

“Pantera Press has come up with a great new idea to foster debate on complex topics… a series of pocket-size books that tackle both sides…”

“… a smart-aleck’s guide to winning arguments at the pub….’ ‘I just love it… a quick read, an informative read, and a cheap read… under $20…”

“Each book in the WHY vs WHY series focuses on a hot-button issue… and two prominent thinkers do their best to convince readers to embrace their position.”

“…for those who pride themselves on arguing the facts rather than on pure emotion, a new ‘double sided’ book from Pantera Press might come in handy – flip the book around one way and read the ‘no’ case… then flip it over again to read the ‘yes’ case…”
