As I said in your last message, "I don't think you will find many people who are willing to explain to you how to build your very own working nuclear device."

" DOE FUNDAMENTALS HANDBOOK NUCLEAR PHYSICS AND REACTOR THEORY
Volume 1 and 2" is a very basic handbook that covers some basic or fundamental background for nuclear reactor theory. It is not very detailed.

There are no 'free' books that have suitable details for designing a reactor, and certainly not one for nuclear weapons.

I remember back when I was in fifth grade me and my friends checked out a book on nuclear power for a report and we freaked out when we found a diagram showing how a nuclear bomb worked. We thought we would be able to build one from it haha.

I'm sure if you write to the DOE or IAEA they'll be sure to supply you some detailed schematics and tips.

Manzuoni,

Yes - you can get a "cartoon" diagram of a nuclear weapon - but NOT design details.

It's like someone gives you a drawing or picture of a car - sleek body, 4 wheels on rubber tires.

Now - do you have enough information to go out and design and construct your own car?

Of course NOT - the real secrets to how nuclear weapons work are still secret.

I agree with some of the other say. If at all you need to know the details of a nuclear reactor or a weapon, it is going to be very difficult to find one. However you can see the basics of a functioning nuclear reactor on wikipedia

Nuclear War Survival Skills by Cresson H. Kearny

Not only is it free, but I believe it to be the most comprehensive reference book available.
