Too Hot to Handle: The Race for Cold Fusion, 2nd Ed., by Frank E. Close
Reviewed by Dieter Britz

This is the same book as the first edition, with an Epilogue added. Most of what has happened since the first edition, as far as the Epilogue is concerned, is of a personal nature, rather than developments in cold fusion itself. FC has obtained more details of the events in the 'gamma spectrum affair' that precoccupies him. There are a few snippets of news on the research front. More interestingly, there are accounts by cold fusion critics, of how their viewpoint has affected their lives. Some of them feel that a lot of their research time has been wasted as a result, but most are now settling back into a normal life.
