"We later dropped the LMFBR due to proliferation concerns and reactor control issues, but never came back to MSR, political inertia." (sic)
In places, the author strings together a series of quotes, always attributed, but without connecting them with his own content or setting them into a secure context.
More fundamentally, he does not give background on why new energy sources are needed, or what the disadvantages on staying on our present energy course may be. He may judge that readers interested in this rather esoteric topic are quite likely to already understand such background, which may be true. One other drawback is that are few (about six) illustrations and diagrams, given a subject that cries out for a more graphic treatment.
What he does give, in a terse, telegraphic style, is a good background on the relevant technical aspects of this attractive, little-known, and certainly under-appreciated potential energy source.
I recommend it to the media, to magazine publishers, the nuclear advisors of environmental organizations, the NRC, members of Congress, the EPA, and the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy as providing information about a critically essential ingredient that will most likely be required to meet the world's increasing need for power while drastically reducing fossil fuel combustion.
I gave it five stars because I often refer to it and quote from it as a source of carefully worded scientific fact. I hope it will be published in book form.
