Booklist Review

In the quest for new and better energy sources, hydrogen is considered a likely candidate. Peavey has produced a survey of current research on the subject, including both practical and theoretical concepts. He discusses costs and cost comparisons between the various conventional fuel sources and hydrogen fuel. Cars, household heat, cooking, and many other fuel usages are described. The chemical equations, performance diagrams, and schematics of prototype machinery with which he augments the text will not appeal to many casual readers, but they will appreciate his careful explanations of the impact of hydrogen fuel on airplanes, household appliances, and other mechanical features of everyday life.
