From Library Journal
Mallove, a professional science writer, tells the history of recent cold fusion research from the dramatic Pons-Fleischmann announcement in March 1989 until approximately the fall of 1990. All the major twists and turns of the story are related with a modest amount of technical detail; it should be quite intelligible to laypeople. Mallove covers much the same ground at about the same level as Frank Close does in Too Hot To Handle ( LJ 5/15/91). However, there is a dramatic difference--Mallove is a firm believer in the cold fusion phenomenon; he is thus at the opposite end of the spectrum from Close. At the moment, the scientific consensus appears to be with the skeptics, but Mallove's book is nevertheless recommended for all libraries that have Close's. In tandem, the two volumes will give readers an interesting view of a continuing scientific controversy.

The Politics of Extraterrestrials....Connecting the Dots
For choosing to stand with the evidence in a time of deceit, he was marginalized by mainstream science, along with Fleischmann and Pons, who left the country after the controversy. Now, we see many more, like Michael McKubre from SRI and Robert Godes of Brillouin, showing the evidence of excess heat and offering technical explanations for how it is achieved.
