Overview

Ever wonder what hydrogen energy is all about?  Where the hydrogen will come from and how we will use it? Open this book and embark on a learning safari to the Wasserstoff Farm where you’ll discover the solid science and cutting-edge technologies behind the H2 media hype, and have more fun than you’re supposed to. 

Three books in one:
1.  Review basic chemical principles of how fuel can be transformed into useful energy.
2.  Explore the many sources of hydrogen and ingenious methods devised to extract it.
3.  Discover how we will use hydrogen—in our homes and buildings, vehicles and public transportation, for electricity in remote areas, and much more.

Science is explained, ideas illuminated and myths dispelled in this highly readable book about what many experts are calling the most important new energy for planet Earth.

What People Are Saying

Dennis Weaver
I was sure HYDROGEN Hot Stuff Cool Science was going to be a stodgy and tedious read. I discovered, to my delight, Rex A. Ewing has concocted a formula that made it not only educational and informative, but downright entertaining. It’s a winner!
Actor, Ecolonomist, Founder / Board Member Institute of Ecolonomics
Doug Larson
I have read nearly every book on hydrogen technologies, and can safely say that this is the most readable and entertaining book available. If you’re looking for a comprehensive treatise on the technical aspects of the hydrogen future, I highly recommend this book.
Ph.D., owner of FuelCellStore.com
Raymond Atwood
A great tool for teachers; the informative illustrations and numerous website references are excellent. I give Ewing an A+ for originality!
High School Science Teacher, 2003 Western North Dakota Teacher of the Year
Ronal Larson
Rex’s book combines clear technical descriptions with an entertaining approach that keeps you reading. Using a wise wizard capable of bringing the hugely important new science of hydrogen energy to life is a clever approach, and every chapter is followed by technical details obtained from excellent web references. Readers are in for a lot of surprises-including many amazing, not-yet-well-known future approaches to hydrogen generation and use.
Ph.D., Chair-elect- American Solar Energy Society
Steve Iwanicki Jr.
What a great book! The characters gave the topic some much needed fun, and the technical aspects of the science were well presented at the end of each chapter, clearing up any questions I may have had. If there’s a way to make science interesting, this is it.
