"This book presents a lucid explanation of the workings of thorium-based reactors. It is must reading for anyone interested in our energy future."
"As our energy future is essential I can strongly recommend the book for everybody interested in this most significant topic."
"The book describes mankind's hope for a sustainable and prosperous future: high-temperature thorium-based reactors. The writing is clear and factual, and the book will helpful to anyone interested in energy choices."
"Robert Hargraves is right: for nuclear energy to rapidly displace fossil fuels, it must become safer, cleaner, and cheaper — and next generation thorium technologies are leading candidates for that mission. In his excellent new book, Thorium: Energy Cheaper than Coal, Hargraves makes a compelling case that thorium holds great potential for powering a world of seven going on 10 billion people, all yearning to live modern, energy-rich lives. But Thorium goes beyond advocacy to offer a detailed description of the tough technical challenges that face thorium, and the innovation policies needed to accelerate this potentially world-changing energy technology. In offering a vision of environmental sustainability achieved not through raising the cost of energy but lowering it, Hargraves' Thorium is a valuable public service."

"I come from a pure science and from a financial/economics world. Your book is spot on target and true genius. The best way to help people, and solve our environmental problems is to make the solution an economically viable one. Anything else ultimately truly hurts the lower tiers of society a lot more than the upper tiers and is heartless in the end."
"Anything from Robert Hargraves is worth reading....this one is a must as it wipes out all of the opposition to nuclear power. Read the book and understand how we all have been brainwashed by the fossil industry. There is no existential substitute for nuclear and Hargraves shows us how cheap it can be."
