Our life is rich in various phenomena. Some of them are amazing and hard to explain; moreover, sometimes they oppose common sense, theory, and practice. A phenomenon of the kind has been observed over the past ten or more years in the electric power industry of many countries, including Russia.

This book is devoted to the analysis of this situation, an attempt to understand its roots, trace its consequences, and find the ways of prevention.
