Imagine a blackout lasting not days, but weeks or months. Tens of millions of people over several states are affected. For those without a generator, there is no running water, no sewage, no refrigeration or light. Food and medical supplies are dwindling. Devices we rely on have gone dark. Banks no longer function, looting is widespread, and law and order are being tested as never before. In Lights Out, award-winning journalist and longtime Nightline anchor Ted Koppel reveals that a major cyberattack on America's power grid is not only possible, but also likely and that its effects would be devastating. Worst of all, the United States is shockingly unprepared.
Join The Odd Shelf Book Club for a discussion of this fascinating and alarming read.
