Item description for Science of Low Energy Nuclear Reaction: A Comprehensive Compilation of Evidence and Explanations about Cold Fusion by Edmund Storms...
One of the most important discoveries of this century cold fusion was summarily rejected by science and the media before sufficient evidence had been accumulated to make a rational judgment possible. Enough evidence is now available to show that this rejection was wrong and that the discovery of a new source of clean energy may help solve some serious problems currently facing mankind. The book catalogues and evaluates this evidence and shows why the initial reaction was driven more by self-interest than fact. This book is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the history and science behind the cold fusion controversy. In addition to the technological importance of the effect, the discovery of new ways to initiate nuclear reactions without producing significant radiation reveals an entirely new mechanism operating at the nuclear level in solid material. This new mechanism has important implications for an understanding of many other phenomena.

a basic overview on cold fusion science Feb 25, 2008
I would say that this book is not bad, I suppose it has been designed to provide a list of evidences on the reality of this "strange" phenomenon since its origins. It does not provide a deep view on the most recent advances or a realistic analysis on practical perspectives. I think it would be most useful as a "faithfull bible for skeptikals". Nevertheless I really appreciate the efforts of Dr. Storms to increase visibility of this "paria" field of science that has a great potential not only to be fully recognized but also to become a "first class field" for the coming decade.
Science of LENR is a comprehensive work Oct 16, 2007
This is the definitive work on low energy nuclear reactions. No fusion researcher should be without this book. It provides a newcomer to the field a rapid comprehensive exposure to the scientific work to date, provided with more than 1000 references, and is a valuable continuing resource. Dr. Edmond Storms is one of the leading experts in the field. He began work in the field in 1989 at Los Alamos National Laboratory, under DoE funding, and continues experimental work in his private lab following retirement. He has testified before congress on cold fusion. The book covers his personal experiences with cold fusion and what is known about cold fusion in general, including where it occurs, what influences its behavior, how it is initiated, and how it is measured. The book includes explanations of the phenomena by leading theorists, as well as discussion of limitations to the known theories. It also includes a useful set of appendices, including one on construction of a Seebeck calorimeter. This book will become increasingly important as awareness of the reality of low energy nuclear reactions becomes commonplace.
