Cool, dispassionate scientists and policymakers will receive his book, I trust, with the respect it deserves.' FRANK CLOSE, NATURELong and quotable review by Steven Jones, Brigham Young Univ., in Physics World, which won't fit in this field. `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.'

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.
5.0 out of 5 stars Dr. Huizenga was Right 29 Aug. 2015
By steven hargan - Published on
Format: Paperback
I had the pleasure, and honor, of meeting Dr. Huizenga while he was living in Pinehurst, NC. I had just read this book and had the chance to talk to him about it and the various attempts with cold fusion, including the Navy's work. I never had the chance to talk with him about the Navy's report, but it did not fare well within the scientific community. Dr. Huizenga was not only brilliant, and an important contributor to our national security, but John was also a kind, gentleman.

4.0 out of 5 stars 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.

1.0 out of 5 stars 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.
