In the spring of 1989, researchers at the University of Utah made an announcement that rocked the scientific community and is still making news today. Is cold fusion myth or reality, and if it does exist, as many scientists now secretly believe, why did its suggestion first meet with such hostility from within the scientific community and the media? In this book are the answers to these questions and many more - explaining the science involved while exposing the inside story of cold fusion. It is a disturbing tale of professional rivalry and mysterious wheeling and dealing in a high-stakes game.

Eugene Mallove, Sc.D., currently Editor-in-Chief, Infinite Energy magazine, was Chief Science Writer for the MIT News Office (1987-1991), a former syndicated science writer for major newspapers and magazines, and the well-known author of the popular books The Quickening Universe and The Starflight Handbook. Dr. Mallove holds advanced degrees in astronautical engineering and environmental science.From Library Journal:
Mallove, a professional science writer, tells the history of recent cold fusion research from the dramatic Pons-Fleischmann announcement in March 1989 until approximately the fall of 1990. All the major twists and turns of the story are related with a modest amount of technical detail; it should be quite intelligible to laypeople. Mallove covers much the same ground at about the same level as Frank Close does in Too Hot To Handle ( LJ 5/15/91). However, there is a dramatic difference--Mallove is a firm believer in the cold fusion phenomenon; he is thus at the opposite end of the spectrum from Close. At the moment, the scientific consensus appears to be with the skeptics, but Mallove's book is nevertheless recommended for all libraries that have Close's. In tandem, the two volumes will give readers an interesting view of a continuing scientific controversy.
