1.0 out of 5 stars Slightly Disappointed November 11, 2008
I ordered this book to complete my doomsday weapon. The information is clear and well drawn-out, particularly the detail regarding the fusion of plasma energy with dark matter. My weapon was finished on schedule. Guaranteed Armageddon. It was beautiful, really. Except it turned out that due to a tiny error on page 601 of the book, my device was not exactly a success. I now have to start from scratch. Beginning with my army of minions.

5.0 out of 5 stars They're Listening! July 12, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition
After all this time, Amazon and the publishers are listening to our $6999.99 boycott! To show my pleasure and to reward them for doing so, I purchased this book.

The first couple of chapters were slow and went over the basics of nuclear energy that I learned in the 4th grade. However, by chapter 3, the pace really started to pick up and I could. not. put. it. down! The suspense was killing me!

I now have about half a reactor built in my backyard and am waiting a delivery from Home Depot and Bed, Bath and Beyond to finalize the construction.

When it is completed, I will drink from the pool, as illustrated in chapter 13, in order to obtain great strength so that I may, once and for all, pound my older brother in to the sand with my pinkie finger, as I threatened to do all those years ago, for putting me in a headlock and slugging me in the gut.

Thank you, Landolt and Bornstein! You helped one girl get her revenge!

5.0 out of 5 stars Seems expensive, but knowledge is priceless. November 11, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition
From the moment I started reading this fascinating piece of literature I constantly would ask myself one question..."Is this worth the $6,000 I just spent?". In a word, yes. Sure, the price may ward off some people but when you break it down, it's only a bit over $10 per page. You can't see a movie anymore for $10. As you read the ins and outs of boiling water reactors, pressurized steam reactors, and a multitude of new advancements in the world of nuclear energy, you'll quickly forget that you could have gone to Europe, bought a decent used Harley, or even a well equipped man cave instead. Buy it. Right now.

I, like another reviewer, am glad that Amazon is finally listening to the $6,999.99 Kindle boycott movement. Since they finally made this book affordable, I gave it a go. It's a well-written piece, but it does tend to drivel on at the end about applications of nuclear energy.

I originally bought this book to complete my laser beam array for my home security system; I needed the ability to put up a laser grid that could burn a zombie in half simply by crossing the line into my yard (Resident Evil style). As it turned out, I needed 7.66 gigawatts of energy to power the beam system, and my local power company said they couldn't provide that kind of energy without a few billion dollars a month. So, I had to find an alternative.

And an alternative I found in this book. At just over 6-grand, it's a steal! (compared to billions of dollars a month in electric bills)

This book taught me how to obtain my uranium, how to build the reactor, and how to control my power plant from melting down. No messy Chernobyl incidents here!

Why it didn't make it to 5 stars: the book does seem to ramble on and on at the end about safety issues and radioactivity concerns, but who worries about that kind of crap anymore?

Ah, the stupid thing is overheating again. I'll be back - if I make it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good but could be better... November 14, 2008
Sure I can render my foes defenseless with the mighty transmogrifier I made after finishing chapter 5 but I was lead to believe this was the "Pop Up" version of Nuclear Energy (Landolt-Bornstein: Numerical Data and Functional Relationships in Science and Technology). I already own the abridged version of Nuclear Energy (Landolt-Bornstein: Numerical Data and Functional Relationships in Science and Technology) and while it did allow me to dabble in the juvenile realm of cold fusion it was the tantilizing prospect of world domination wrought via colorful anime pop ups that really hooked me in to this purchase. On a plus note the illustrations (while only 2D) are hilarous. Landolt-Bornstein are famous for their wit (as witnessed in the classic "Bornstein Bears" cartoon series). Bottom line, if you already own the original Nuclear Energy (Landolt-Bornstein: Numerical Data and Functional Relationships in Science and Technology) skip this purchase; if your looking to expand your library of Numerical Data and Functional Relationship books and don't mind the lack of 3D Pop Up Support then buy a copy today.

By John
Format:Kindle Edition
This is easily the best book on the market right now about Energy Technologies. As soon as I got it in the mail and felt its almost glowing metallic power in my hands and saw its vibrant, assertive, yet passionate blue cover, I knew my $6,000 had been well-invested. After reading the book while beating World of Warcraft for the 15th and 16th times respectively, I then used the supplied plutonium core hidden between the two back pages to build my first nuclear power plant using parts from my microwave, my blender, my clarinet from fifth grade, and my lawnmower. I was finally able to power the tractor beam that I built using my Chevy Manza and two tubes of toothpaste detailed in these guys' other book, "Advanced Meteorite Acquisition Techniques Volume III".

Overall, a highly recommended book.

Yet another item for suckers...
Might be worth it if it comes with 2 or 3 kg of plutonium for your backyard experiments.
