Received the book, just started reading.
Thomas Poulos
Nick Cook starts his Hunt for Zero Point as an adventure story : which is as it should be, for all research into the unknown - especially the well-guarded unknown!
George-Peter Paxinos
All in all I thought this book was very well written and quite entertaining.

Format: Hardcover
When I first came across Nick Cook's "The Hunt for Zero Point" in a bookstore, I scoffed at the subtitle: "Inside the classified world of antigravity technology." As an aerospace engineer, historian and dyed-in-the-wool skeptic, I figured it was probably full of mystical, pseudo-scientific nonsense that would appeal only to those with absolutely no understanding of how the world works. Surely, I thought, it would offer nothing of value to knowledgeable, sophisticated, discriminating readers. In fact, I initially lumped it into the same category as Philip Corso's "The Day After Roswell," which remains possibly the most shamelessly self-serving, manifestly ridiculous and blatantly fabricated "true story" ever concocted.

Then, later, I checked a copy of "The Hunt for Zero Point" out of the library and read it. My opinion is now completely different. I highly recommend it if you are interested in learning about an obscure, previously unknown aspect of aerospace history that, if true, has major implications for the future of nearly every high-technology enterprise on Earth.

Mr. Cook has impressive qualifications. He served for over a decade as the Aviation Editor of the highly respected aerospace journal "Jane's Defence Weekly." His knowledge of the people, companies, hardware, technology and politics of today's "military/industrial complex" is extraordinary. Quite simply, he gets it right. A useful way to gauge the knowledge and attention to detail that an author brings to his work is to check if he defines acronyms correctly. Mr. Cook does. As best I can tell, he also gets right every person, place, date, event and company that he mentions--at least, the ones that I could verify.

This is an interesting book. The author is a British aerospace journalist, who is up on his cutting edge technology. The subject is his personal quest to uncover, between assignments, the covert science of our government which operates in the "black" beyond public scrutiny. The style is a first person action narrative in which most of the action is a guy researching on the internet and making important phone calls while his plane is boarding. This is where I knock off the 5th star, as a journalist adventure story written by a technician is sometimes not such a page turner.
The titular zero point is the inexhaustable energy that exists in the quantum foam of our universe, which thus far has been proven to be there, but has not yet been harnessed. Obviously, the government who gets at it first will rule the planet for some time.
Cook does some stellar research to make real world sense out of the legends and myths that have arisen from the ashes of WWII. He discovers the truth behind the rumors that the Nazis were building flying saucers towards the end of the war. He also reveals the great genius of the American conquistadors was in their highly efficient absorbtion of German secret technology and scientists at the close of the war.
We all know that the Germans invented (discovered?) quantum mechanics in the early part of the century, and the Nazis had workable technology far in advance of the Allies during the war. We also know that the greatest of the German scientists did work for America upon conclusion of the war, and were the engineers that put us on the moon a couple of decades later. What we don't know is what else they were working on.

Format: Hardcover
You will enjoy this book if you:
(1) have considered becoming an investigative journalist. Nick Cook provides a close up view of what an investigative journalist does -- including satisfactions and disappointments.
(2) are fascinated by World War 2.
(3) would like to get a feel for how governments manage, protect, and pursue top secret advanced technology innovation.
You will be disappointed in this book if you:
(1) prefer to see endings where a quest is achieved.
(2) expect to learn many insider secrets about exotic new energy breakthroughs.
(3) already know all you want to know about WW2.
If learning more about breakthrough energy technology itself is your main interest, then you're better of to use an Internet search engine with the phrase "zero point".

Anti-gravity, Zero Point Energy, Torsion Fields and time warps are the stuff of science fiction - right?
Well maybe not quite. Nick Cook delivers a book that deserves careful consideration. He follows the data and comes to incredible revelations. Perhaps, there is a way to either shield gravity or to produce an anti-gravity effect. Maybe there is more energy resting in a show box than all the oil fields and nuclear power plants dotting the globe. And what if the speed of light is not the boundary we have come to believe it is?
Before you discard the notion, I dare you to read the book and then go to your browser and start looking up names or places or ideas. There is a wealth of knowledge out there that is way outside the box.
Coupled with a tremendous scientific story are the efforts by the American government to keep much of this technology under wraps and behind closed doors. The black world (as Cook calls it) rarely meets the white world.
For anyone remotely interested in cutting edge technology, this is a must must read.
