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.
As Mallove points out this has not been unusual with complex mechanisms and was typical of transistors and high temperature superconductivity. Many of the principals that appear in the book are no longer active in the field. Some, such as Peter Haglestein continue to be active in pursuing advances in the area.

Given the far-fetched, ce nature of their experiment, it was perhaps predictable that the euphoria that greeted the spring 1989 announcement by Utah chemists Martin Fleischmann and B. Stanley Pons that they'd achieved a ""cold"" nuclear fusion reaction in a jar of heavy water would lead quickly to profound disappointment and scathing criticism in the popular.

Mallove authored Fire from Ice, a book detailing the 1989 report of tabletop cold fusion from Stanley Pons and Martin Fleischmann at the University of Utah. Mallove, Eugene J. (1999-08-01).
Fire From Ice chronicles one of the most misunderstood and valued scientific controversies of all time. It details the events surrounding and following the 1989 Pons and Fleischmann announcement of the discovery of cold nuclear fusion. Mallove offers a unique insider's view of the controversy, while at the same time explaining the relevant science and technology. Nominated for the Pulitzer Prize.

Eugene Mallove tragically lost his life earlier this year in a simple act of barbarism. So odd that a man who devoted his life to one of the most neglected and abstract fields of science in the late 20th Century would die in such a senseless manner. Luckily, Gene's lifes work will not be a waste, as Cold Fusion is finally starting to achieve the recognition it rightly deserves. It will be pinoneers like Dr. Mallove who will be remembered for keeping the Cold Fusion flame alive during some of its darkest moments.
