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.

"Aim High" isn't a book. It's not even a proper booklet or pamphlet. Rather, it's a power-point presentation also available for free at the author's website. It would have been better if Robert Hargraves had aimed higher and published a real book about thorium-based nuclear power and its fantastic ability to save the world. Or at least a proper campaign pamphlet. Even apart from the fact that his presentation feels somewhat confused and not always very informative... Two stars, Doctor.

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.

Let's compare apples with oranges...

A UK physicist - author of "Sustainable Energy - Without the Hot Air - lets his readers decide how miucjh his book may be worth. Download it in PDF (from http://WithoutHotAir.com) & maybe buy it in paper later. It's worth it!

This author does not seem to have the same co figdence in his book's value. Pernapls he'lla!low it too eojt inKimdle format, with a Mich smaller price...?
