So if you think that your only worry is about losing your job or not being able to come up with the rent next month, here is a whole lot of other things that you can worry about outside of global warming, the destruction of the environment, and the shaky economy. I've learned to take a "What me worry?" attitude toward life since I have all I can do to just pay the bills. Close also wrote the book TOO HOT TO HANDLE about cold fusion, which I reviewed, as well as mentioning Apocalypse When? His newer books about neutrinos, the vacuum, and other such things are excellent,although they all follow the 'party line' of mainstream physics. However, all of his books are useful since you can at least get some idea of where he and/or mainstream physics may have gone wrong. If you enjoy reading popular books on science, Apocalypse When? is a good one to read."; 9.21 X 6.22 X 1.10 inches; 242 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 12820
