Polywater by Felix Franks
This product is currently sold out.
Author Felix Franks was a prestigious researcher and professor at the time of this publication, whose encounter with his subject was totally by coincidence, that those in the "polywater" circle overlapped with his. A science historian and deemed "Water Expert," Franks is a strong contrast to the 1970's frenzy over a Soviet discovery "polywater" and its remarkable and dangerous properties; that turned out to cause a community's delusion of progress and even scientists fooling themselves. Nonetheless, Franks imbues his careful study of this molecular disinformation campaign with analysis of the material itself, the mentality of the 1970's science community, and asides that discuss the importance and science of our actual water, incredible all by itself.
