Format: Paperback
This book served as a nice introduction to fuels cells. It explains the basic concepts and how to build your own simple fuel cells without getting overly technical. It covers a lot of the different fuel cells types. I had previously only known about PEM and methanol fuel cells and this book has interested me into doing further research on microbial fuel cells.

My one issue with the book is with the part numbers listed for items from Fuel Cell Store (which the author mentioned working with to write this book). The part numbers listed were not always able to be found on the website. The alkaline fuel cell from the book is one example, it is no longer available from the store. I was able to find the manufacturer's website and they said they are no longer making it. For a book that was just published this seemed odd and these errors should been caught during proofreading. These errors are more of an issue with the earlier chapters and with experiments that most people are probably going to skip anyway to get to the more interesting ones.

Bought this book with a keen interest to learn all I can about fuel cells and experimenting hands on is a great way to make it soak in. Most of the experiments in this book are only halfway explained. The required acids for example are left out of one, except where later is stated not to use a certain acid because its dangerous. After being left to dry on the first half of the book I stopped. Maybe later after I find other fuel cell source to answer my questions I'll finish this one.

The book shows the principles behind fuel cell devices using interesting experiments. It presents, for my surprise, a procedure to make a membrane electrode assembly using home avaliable equipaments. It has a rigorous scientific aproach about the theme (hydrogen and fuel cells) but using an understandable way to show it over the text. I really recommend this book for teachers to initiate their students into the fascinating world of fuel cells

This book provides no text provides no more information that what can be found on the internet. There is no innovation in these projects. I agree with the other reviewer perhaps this book was rush together in a hurry, just to get a book out, because the quality suffers so badly.
The book appears to be target toward a young audience and perhaps I am being too critical. Considering the release date of the book I was expecting more advance information. It is not to be had here. Skip this book.

I am surprised that a company like McGraw-Hill would be the publisher of this book.

I was looking for info for a project of mine and was unaware that the contents are aimed at children with well heeled parents. It has basic facts and a wealth of commercial kit tie-ins that would lead to nothing very usable save an improved balance sheet for the company. Avoid.
