The extraordinary story of the Pons and Fleischmann "discovery" of cold fusion in Salt Lake City in 1988, the enormous world-wide media excitement their announcement generated, and the military, political and scientific response to their findings, findings that proved to be irreproducible across the globe and that were to be embarrassedly withdrawn only months later. This book is written by a prominent researcher in the field.
