Book Description

2 July 1993
`An authoritative, frank, hard-hitting account of the cold fusion fiasco.' GLENN T. SEABORG`As a distinguished nuclear chemist he is uniquely qualified to evaluate the field. Cool, dispassionate scientists and policymakers will receive hisbook, I trust, with the respect it deserves.' FRANK CLOSE, NATURE`Members of the scientific community and lay readers interested in the history of the cold fusion episode and its broader implication for the scientific process will find much to consider in John Huizenga's thoughtful account of this astonishing chapter in the history of science.' STANLEY C. LUCKHARDT, Massachusetts Institute of Technology. NATURE`This book belongs in all college and university libraries.' CHOICEIn the spring of 1989 two electrochemists, B. Stanley Pons and Martin Fleischmann, working at the University of Utah, claimed to have duplicated the high-temperature process powering the sun at room temperature in a small jar on a laboratory tabletop. Scientists worldwide rushed to verify cold fusion, but analyses showed that most of the positive reports were plagued by experimental uncertainties, inadequate controls and improper assessment of errors; a definitive experiment still does not exist. Huizenga tells the story of the cold fusion claim in this book, presenting his own analysis of the reports, exploring the damaging consequences of the claim, and affirming his view that test tube fusion with watts of power remains a chimera. JOHN R. HUIZENGA, former Tracy H. Harris Professor of Chemistry and Physics at the University of Rochester, was co-chairman of the Cold Fusion Panel of the Energy Research Advisory board.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dr. Huizenga Will Have To Write a New Book 11 Nov 2004
By Romeo Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cold Fusion 5 April 2000
By Matt - Published on Amazon.com
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.
