About the Author

Rex Ewing is a writer who loves a challenge, especially when it comes wrapped up in numbers and science that beg to be explained. When people in the hydrogen industry and the book world asked him to write a book about hydrogen and fuel cells for the non-scientist, he couldn't resist the opportunity to take dry—some would say incomprehensible—science, and craft a page-turner that reads like a best seller. His efforts have resulted in a book that can be enjoyed by all, high school age on up. Even scientists will appreciate his vivid visualizations that get to the heart of their science.

What People are Saying About This

Richard Smith

“Whether it's read for content, for pleasure, or as a source of great read-aloud anecdotes, this book provides the most current information on hydrogen and other energy technologies in an enjoyable way.” --Richard Smith for National Science Teachers Association

Brion Tanous

“This book is amazing. It has helped me explain the complex science of hydrogen to Wall Street investors.” --Brion Tanous, Next Generation Energy, Merriman Curhan Ford & Co.

Dr. Charles Bottinelli

“HYDROGEN - Hot Stuff, Cool Science is at once a very enjoyable read and super resource for teachers, as well as for the lay public, who are looking for ways to sort out the basics of hydrogen science.” --Dr. Charles Bottinelli, Disney American Teacher Awards Honoree, 1999; Colorado science educator for 39 years

Richard S. Treptow

“…appeals to readers of any age who have not lost their imagination or spirit of adventure. I also recommend it to the journalists, economists and political leaders of our age in hopes that they will get the science correct when they speak of the most serious technical problem of our time." --Richard S. Treptow, PhD, retired Professor of Chemistry — Chicago State University; textbook editor for numerous publishers
