Oh I don't know about this. I bought it because of Michael Handel's involvement, but I don't recognize him in any of the writing.

This book is more on the human/diplomacy side and the technical aspects, especially around nuclear technology, are very shallow and IMHO fuzzy enough to be misleading. This book needed a co-author with knowledge of physics.

Still giving 3 stars since there also is good information in there and since there isn't anything better.

This second edition includes some terrific new details on the personnel and the perimeters within which the raid occurred. It is especially interesting how so many that attempted to put the raid in a bad light originally now understand the historical significance as well as the ability of the Israeli leadership to conduct the raid at all.

This book is really useful today, since all indicators show that an Israeli air strike against Iran seems to be just a matter of time. During the 1970s Israel faced the same problem of national extinction (or so it assumed) at the hands of a hated enemy, when Saddam's regime made great efforts to construct nuclear reactors (with French help) and probably to develop nuclear weapons. The Israelis reacted with a campaign of preventive assasinations and diplomatic pressure worldwide which didn't bear fruit, thus they had to resort to a well planned air strike by their newest fighters, the F-16s. The book focuses more on the political than the military matters (for which it loses one star in my opinion) and shows how Tel Aviv took the decision to unlease its fighters and why it chose the specific time to do so, taking into account pure political considerations regarding the opposition parties in Israel and the need for a desicive action before a possible change of government. There are some very good black and white photos and also some maps. For the aviation fans I would recommend also the older book "Bullseye One Reactor" which is excellent in covering the military aspects of the raid, although it does't give any name of the Israeli pilots who executed it (this book does reveal the names and the faces of the protagonists).
