Previous ed.: 2001. "In May of 1946, on the day of a lunar eclipse, a Canadian physicist named Louis Slotin was in his last hours of work training his replacement on the Manhattan Project. Slotin's job was to bring a core of nuclear fissile material as close to criticality as possible. Nine months to the day earlier, his predecessor had performed this exact experiment on the same nuclear core, had an accident, and died. There was one further twist: Slotin's replacement, Alvin Graves, was having an affair with his wife. On the afternoon of May 21, Slotin, Graves, and other senior scientists crammed into a lab. For reasons that remain murky, standard safety procedures were ignored and the plutonium went critical --- a phenomenon scientists call a "bloom." Nine days later, Slotin died." "Michael Lista, a thrilling new voice in poetry, reimagines this fateful day in a long poem comprised of several threads: the mysterious events of May 21, 1946; the connection to Slotin's ancient predecessor Odysseus, creator of the Trojan Horse, the first weapon of mass destruction; and the link to Slotin's literary mirror, the cuckolded Leopold Bloom of Joyce's Ulysses. Bloom brilliantly draws together these stories, themes, and images, and moves us towards the untranslatable moment of human novelty and creativity: the eclipse, and the moment of the "bloom.""--Jacket.

Key point summary. "If you're a manager with people who report directly to you, it's important that you give them feedback on their behavior and performance. Most of your employees want to do a good job. Many are unaware of the impact of their behavior on their job performance, for good or bad. Feedback from you, their manager, can help them identify what they are doing well and build on those skills, correct problems, and develop new abilities that improve not just their personal lives but also the organization in which they and you work. This guidebook will tell when you should give feedback, how you should deliver it, and how to manage its results."--Publisher.
