Goes very deep into the scientific details. Prose is ... 20 Feb. 2015
By Enric Naval - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Goes very deep into the scientific details. Prose is quite thick. One problem: it cites lots of newspaper articles, scientific papers, etc.but doesn't give the full bibliographical details. It's a bit difficult to find the source material if you are researching the topic.

Dr. Huizenga Will Have To Write a New Book 11 Nov. 2004
By JohnnyCJohnny - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Since Dr. Huizenga wrote this scathing book against Cold Fusion, so much has happened in the field. Even the U.S. Navy revealed in the Spring, 2003 that they have been clandestinely researching Cold Fusion for a decade. Their conclusion? Cold Fusion is real and it warrants an official government funded research effort. Dr. Huizenga, well meaning or not, missed the boat on Cold Fusion. It's too bad he put his closed-minded scientific views in writing for the whole world to see. I wonder if he'll be writing a new book when Cold Fusion re-emerges into the scientific mainstream in coming years? Cold Fusion is being replicated all around the world, and the skeptics are just flat-earthers at this point.

Cold Fusion 5 April 2000
By Matt - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is the greatest book describing the scientific fiasco of the century. It is a great book describing the theory and showing experiments to try and duplicate this process of cold fusion. Great Book.
