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 Many of the principals that appear in the book are no longer active in the field.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

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.

Discusses the furor over the announcement that scientists had succeeded in producing controlled nuclear fusion at ordinary temperatures, describes the further research that has been done, and argues that cold fusion may still eventually be perfected

The focus of the book is on cold fusion's statistically impossible anomalies. The author shows that such data can be just as important as repeatable experiments even though it is not accepted by mainstream scientists for some stubborn reason. If you all have a chance, check out the 60 minutes special on cold fusion on youtube where a skeptical scientist recants his original statements upon witnessing unexplainable anomalies at a facility which was carefully set up with his supervision. I really feel this book shows the promise of cold fusion without getting speculative or cultish. It's a wonderful book. Buy it if you want a good read on how peer reviewed conventional science can still fail us. Buy it if you have a fascination with cold fusion as it goes into the history of all fusion and has illustrations/photos to boot.

Among other things, Dr. Mallove reveals in his book Fire from Ice that research laboratories had free energy machines running 100 times over unity for several months at a time and this was in the early 1990s.

Dr. Eugene Mallove dedicated his life to the advancement of humanity through science. In this book, he clearly shows that there was an organized effort to suppress this "excess heat" Fleischmann-Pons effect that became known as cold fusion. Dr. Mallove realized early in the 1989 controversy that MIT was going to cover up positive results of excess heat from an electrochemical cell. He had to choose where he would stand in history, being a chief science writer for MIT. He chose to leave his job to advance this excess heat effect as a form of energy production.

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.

Long drawn out history of scientific discovery process influenced by media politics and money. Pointless painfully struggle to read. No stars but rating required to submit . So 1 star .

Very nice 1st edition. Well packed, arrived ok in a timely manner. Thanks

Readable to know the situation around CF research at that time.

Buy and read this book, it's sure to be a collectors item soon, as Cold Fusion will soon emerge as a mainstream field of science and Dr. Mallove will be exonerated for persuing such a taboo field of science.
