I have read it, it is a very good read. A nice mix of science and penmenship that keeps it interesting.
Unfortunatly, I can't verify any of the science - part of what made that book enjoyable for me was that Cook is a legit journalist, and not some nut case. He does have a reputation to uphold, so I doubt anything he said was blatantly untrue (as far as the science goes).
Overall, I give this book

I like how Nick Cook makes the case for the B2 using antigravity technology in the sense that the wings edges are charged which helps create lift, improve aerodynamic effciency, and greatly reduces the RCS. I have heard rumors of this, but never gave it anymore thought until I starting reading this book. Does anybody have anymore info on the B2 and how it supposedly uses electrogravitics?

I found an internet copy of "Electrogravitic Systems" which Nick Cook Mentions in his book. Thought it might be something you would be interested in.
this new theory views elementary particles as a region of space-time so intensely warped that it bends back upon itself like a knot. Such a knot necessarily contains a "closed time-like curve". This time-loop, which is also one of the puzzling features of general relativity, enables a particle to interact with other particles not only in its past but in its future. Consequently, a new way of looking at entanglement is that sub-atomic particles, by virtue of the time machines they contain, are not constrained by time. There is nothing to prevent instantaneous interactions between particles, no matter the distance between them.

I've tried searching ATS but have yet to find any threads that discuss this book in any depth; if there's been a good "let's pick this apart" thread I haven't seen it. Has anyone gone ahead and done some verification of names / dates / etc. from this book to make sure that it at least superficially checks out? It might make a good ATS research project if no one has yet.
The book is here at amazon.com:
The Hunt For Zero Point
and here's another site on the same book:
The executive summary of the book's claims:
* around 1955 or so there was a brief media excitement over the prospects of antigravity technology
* almost immediately excitement disappeared entirely, a pattern consistent with projects "going black"
* some of the technology the nazis had been working on had been antigravity related (and also, perhaps, zero-point related, though they may not have known that at the time)
* whatever antigrav work is done is kept entirely under wraps in a deadly serious fashion -- apprently the national security apparatus wasn't pleased with how quickly the atomic bomb spread to russia and others
* podletnkov's father had a collection of schauberger's papers
* antigrav is something "easy" to make if you know what you're doing, but not something you're likely to stumble across by accident if you don't know what to do
* apparently zero-point + gravity go hand in hand -- solve one and you solve the other, more or less
What's really interesting is how many names get named -- companies long since bought and incorporated into larger firms, some of the researchers involved, etc., which leaves this book's claims potentially more verifiable than pretty much anything else I've read. So again: has anyone already made a real attempt to go through and verify the claims in this book in any detailed fashion?
