Editorial Reviews


"I find this frank and open exposition by Dr. Mizuno to be the most thoughtful, most interesting, and most helpful scientifically of all the books to date about 'cold fusion.' In the process of recounting his experiences and views, Dr. Mizuno provides an important glimpse into how research often evolves in practice and how the process can plunge into a chaotic maze in some cases, like 'cold fusion.'" -- Professor George Miley, University of Illinois, Fusion Studies Laboratory

This English translation of Tadahiko Mizuno's Japanese book on cold fusion served as a valuable introduction to significant research and progress in a scientific process many have written off as unachievable. In recounting his personal research with electrochemical cells designed to produce a practical source of energy, Dr. Mizuno tells a story of many failures and a few successes. Clearly, reproducibility and consistent power production have been significant problems in producing energy by cold fusion. Though Mizuno was forced to work under conditions that would be regarded as difficult and unacceptable in much of Europe and the U.S., this persevering researcher slowly learned important factors that relate to the goal of achieving a sustained, controlled, and repeatable cold fusion. The obstacles faced by Mizuno were not limited to poor laboratory equipment or the expense of crucial materials, for he also was required to perform the time-consuming teaching duties of a professor and direct or restrict his research and publication efforts as required by authorities. Dr. Mizuno seems to understand what engineers know quite well: a valid theory facilitates the design of a device by proceeding with a design based upon the knowledge of electrical, chemical, and physical properties of materials. I quite enjoyed those parts of the book that revealed the human qualities of Dr. Mizuno as he struggled towards his personal goal of demonstrating cold fusion. At times, he shares a moment of philsophical reflection, showing delightful sides of his personality and character. For a novice in cold fusion research, the glossary proved indispensable.Read more ›

How often do we have to shake off our preconceived dogmatisms?
The history of science is replete with examples.
Here is a contemporary example.

It has become blindingly obvious that Chemicaly Aided Nuclear Reactions are real and have been the victim of vested interests, much to our loss.

How much better Japan would be now if these discoveries were supported and pursued instead of fission generation.

Let us pray that Rossi can overcome his craven opponents and bring his demonstration to the market.

Tadahiko Mizuno is an honerable professor of electro chemistry who has been working on the issue since 1989.

If you are of an open mind you will find this a good and easy read. It shows the triumph of empircism of over theory.

Thank you Professor Mizuno

...which is the account of a real scientist who has proven that anomalous heat and nuclear transmutations do occur in metal hydrogen/deuterium-loaded systems--albeit unpredictably. Most interesting is the idea he expresses that the so-called "failed" experiments, those intended only to try to show anomalous heat, when this was not produced, may, had the samples been properly analyzed, have proven to have nonetheless produced non-exothermic nuclear transmutations.

We've all heard the fable of the tortoise and the hare. This story exemplifies the true meaning behind that tale. In real life, real hares beat tortoises in footraces. But when one isn't willing to take the first step properly, and follow that with each successive proper step, one not only don't finish first, one was never in the race.

This book rocks; these men, Dr. Mizuno and his CANR-LENR associates, someday, will deserve the Nobel prize.
