Anyone know of a popular plasma book for the layman?
Funny, any bookshop I go to has a science section with a several books on popular accounts of quantum physics, relativity, history of science, a couple on chemistry & history of, astrophysics, string theory, evolution, practical science.
But none on plasma.
How can this be true? Plasma scientists are often starved of research funds. Surely one of them in the last 50 years has had time to write a popular book. Yet all I get on Amazon is >£50 academic books for graduates.
We need a book. Cultivate a general interest in plasma with a great plasma book equivalent to QED by Feynman, Schrodingers cat by J Gribbin or even a brief history of time. Writing one would be time well spent ethically, regardless of cash profit, which by the way would likely also be worth while.
