Some critics say the book is too short; however, they overlook that the general cannot usually have the time, resources, or education to sample technical books by the IAEA (many are already available and have been for decades).
My own additional comment is that this book's brief mention of the German Pebble Bed Modular Reactor (PBMR) type design (built as the THTR-300) is probably more immediately available than the LFTR. In fact, the DOE is working PBMR prototypes, which have flexible fuel cycles that use only uranium or uranium-thorium mixtures. Finally, the book has the goal of creating a globally abundant source of clean and reliable energy. This concept is also major topic in the YouTube video presentation, "Our Energy Challenge" by Nobel Laureate Prof. Richard Smalley. An excerpt from "Our Energy Challenge" and an interview with Prof. Smalley is also on the documentary film "Nobelity."
