    The Preparatory Manual of Chemical Warfare Agents, 3rd edition is by far the best book I've read on the subject of chemical warfare agents. The author Jared Ledgard goes in great depth with each book section and chemical agent, using not only his own knowledge; but also, the use of peer-reviewed research articles and bioinformatics to provide all groups of readers with accurate information on each topic. The book is for literally ANYONE who has an interest in the subject. While medical and first aid responders would find the antidote and symptoms sections of high use, clean-up crews, and emergency personnel would find the dissemination techniques, T1/2 values, persistence ratings, and various other agent physical properties invaluable. Researchers in such fields as chemicals warfare, pesticides, toxicology, and numerous other scientific disciplines will make use of the detailed synthesis of each agent, as well as the lists of functional groups and chemical backbones for each of the... More > major groups of organo-phosphates and organo-chlorides. In addition, the author has also provided the synthesis of numerous intermediates that can be used to create new agents. Laymen and non-chemists will enjoy the overviews in each section; and since the author has also provided a tutorial in chemistry, a reader with no chemistry background will still be able to read, and fully understand each section of this book. Not only is this book a great read and must have for anyone interested in the subject, it should be part of the reading curriculum for anyone researching the subject, and should be an absolute requirement for emergency responders, clean-up crews, and anti-terrorist task forces. ~Neil J.
