This author does not seem to have the same co figdence in his book's value.
Liquid Fuel Nuclear
Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactors (LFTR) may well represent the future of energy production.

The author discusses important and interesting ideas, and expresses them clearly. But the book is little more than a long pamphlet containing a PowerPoint presentation. When I ordered, I hadn't noticed that the description said it was only 40 pages. Most of the information is available on the author's website.

Excellent idea and good job presenting it. The world leaders need to know more about the options to creating clean abundant power and help to clean up the old uranium mess at the same time. The book is a combination of different specialist power point presentations and needs to have a cohesive art director to clear up the distration and present a more consistant message. The book does fail to present a solution to the underlying reason why Uranium is prefered by political/military powers over thorium, which is that Uranium's by product is Plutonium, which is needed for smaller nukes, MIRV capability and triggering Hbombs, etc. You cant get them to switch over (which ould take only a few years) without showing them how they can still make all the plutonium they want.

Mr. Hargraves points down a great path and the world could benefit in many ways if we take it. He appeals to the lowest income nations by promoting a lowest cost energy solution that also benefits the ocean, climate and minimizes surface impacts while increasing safety to humans. I believe that every nation's leader if they were to trust his words would invest in walk this path - the price seems to be minuscule relative to the potential benefits. I recommend it to anyone who believes that how human use the earth's energy can impact our worlds overall health, population and prosperity.

In my haste to learn more about Thorium electrical generation, I ordered this book thinking it would be a real book, relating some of the history, principle players, etc... Especially details on the resistance to Thorium by the nuclear power industry itself and the defense department because Thorium would do away with the need to enrich Uranium for weapons. Instead this is a power point presentation computer print out in a thin magazine format, not warranting the price tag. Fair price should be half that much.

This is an excelent Book about a global solution of energy needs, it describes the problem of the energy requirements in our planet by the human kind and a viable solution using Thorium as an almost infinite and cheap energy source. It is a must read for all of us concerned with the impact of our enviroment using fossil fuels.

This publication is in the form of a concise summary on the use of Thorium as nuclear agent in nuclear power stations. A must to read especially for the person negatively inclined towards the application of nuclear power stations.

Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactors (LFTR) may well represent the future of energy production. This concise and well illustrated book provides a short course in the technology and outlines the many anticipated benefits including safety, economy, limited production of radioactive waste and the possibility of using up some of the considerable quantities of radioactive waste products from existing Uranium/ Plutonium reactors. In short it is a positive, hopeful read.
