Cold Fusion: The Making of a Scientific Controversy, by F. David Peat
Reviewed by Dieter Britz

Somewhat of a rush job, this book brings the reader to around the end of May 1989, or two months into the 'cold fusion affair'. Much of the book is padding, but there is good useful information. In the later part of the book, some slightly more recent happenings are attached, such as the ERAB panel. Peat tries to take a neutral stance but does expand on the vistas opened up by 'cold fusion' if it turns out real.
