difficulty facing any challenge to the existing paradigms of "establishment" science. Highly recommended.
However Krivitt cannot claim total journalistic detachment, as he was involved in the history, as one of his headings ('I Killed Cold Fusion') attests.
Krivit has done a huge amount of exploration in the field of LENR which was initially confused with a form of fusion, cold fusion.
The reaction has a lot of potential to be economically relevant.
THere are good companies working on it. SOme in stealth. Some publicly.
Krivit's weakness is that he is a journalist, a man of words, not science. So he gets totally hung up on nomenclature and is terribly offended by anyone who still want's to call the reaction "cold fusion". He also plays Gotcha when he thinks he caught some scientists being biased and the book suffers a bit by occasional notes of inaccurate and even nasty criticism.
Krivit is very enamored by the Widom-Larsen theory and unhappy with other understandings.
However the value of the work is incredible, both scientifically and historically. It is very well written.
Looking forward to the other two promised volumes.
