No, Sir. Although no restriction has ever been placed on the sale of these manuals, they are designed for those who need to make a close study of the subject, and, quite apart from questions of price, they are too detailed to be suitable for general reading. The facts about nuclear weapons are summarised in non-technical language for the general reader in "The Hydrogen Bomb" published by Her Majesty's Stationery Office, price 9d.
