Star Chambers: The Race for Fusion Power

Star Chambers, published by White Label Books, is about nuclear fusion and gives a basic introduction to fusion for energy for the general reader.  The book is based on the blogs she wrote as the Institute of Physics lecturer in 2010 and includes additional chapters, new pictures and a Tokamak Top 10 of some of the world’s best fusion machines.

“This is one of the most stimulating new books I have read and will be enjoyed by the general, interested reader also, as it gives an excellent overview of the subject.” – ASE School Science Review, Mar 2014
