A gobsmackingly good read… Turrell’s portraits of the undaunted star-building scientists who are trying to make fusion a reality are not just compelling but, dare I say it, fun. I learned a lot by reading this book. You will, too. ― Robert Bryce, author of A Question of Power: Electricity and the Wealth of Nations

The Star Builders surveys this vibrant frontier of science and technology clearly and realistically. It brings a timely, hopeful message. ― Frank Wilczek, Winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics and author of Fundamentals: Ten Keys to Reality


Incredibly readable and entertaining. The book’s first-hand accounts of what is occurring inside fusion startups are especially enthralling. Turrell skillfully tells the fascinating story of the personalities, science, and technology that have brought this fledging industry to the point of takeoff. ― Jason Parisi, coauthor of The Future of Fusion Energy


Painstakingly researched. Turrell gives us a front-row seat to the hard-fought race for fusion, and he offers convincing reasons for optimism. In fact, he shows us a galaxy of effort being directed toward ‘building a star.’ ― James Mahaffey, PhD, author of Atomic Adventures


Arthur Turrell captures the excitement of the race to produce the first commercial fusion energy-perhaps the most important technological race of all. ― Sir Steve Cowley, director of Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory
