Try to get your hands on the author's 2nd edition which has some additional more up-to-date information and possible corrections. In any case I have to give this a solid 5 stars because of the scientific precision of the material contained therein. This may be due to the fact that the author is not just another "environmentalist" but an Engineer and with a Phd degree professor emeritus etc.

What is not mentioned in the 1st edition is potential solutions for hydrogen embrittlement inside of existing pipelines and the issues associated with hydrogen molecules so tiny that they leak through stainless steel diaphragms on pressure sensors. If the book does not deal with this then I have the answers.... and have already met and discussed these issues with the author personally.
