"The perplexed" in the subtitle are primarily those scientists still trying to understand the cold fusion issue and the question of whether chemistry can affect nuclear reactions. After the initial, controversial announcement on cold fusion in March 1989, the author (a Rocketdyne researcher) was asked by the Electric Power Research Institute to aid experimenters in the search for nuclear residue in their experiments. Here, in 10 chapters and six appendixes, he reports in a "dialogue" between an apocryphal Young Scientist and Old Metallurgist on nearly five years of work investigating measurements of apparent nuclear signatures. Along the way he also documents an effort to extract whatever facts might remain as interesting scientific phenomena from the confusion surrounding cold fusion claims.
