The work, originally produced in German, is an attractive and well presented argument for an energy source that is non-poluting and inexhaustable, and may solve many of our current energy problems. The ideas and concepts are explained in such a way that both lay person and expert may benefit of the many years of practical and theoretical work on which the book is based.Copiously provided with statistical and financial data, the book is a must-read for energy professionals, decisionmakers and politicians everywhere.
