Very thorough in a broad perspective manner. The information was technical at times and relatively basic at others. The book covers topics such as who is investing in nanotechnology, what Universities and Agencies are involved, what countries are researching in this area, and who are the key individuals in nanotechnology development. I enjoyed the section on the basic science and applications such as in medicine. ( )

Ok, so I read a lot of these Dummy books, I will admit to it. Nanotechnology captured my fascinations years ago when I read a book about it that blew me away. Of course progress has been slow in getting to the point where this technology will truly revolutionize our lives in so many ways. The applications are limitless and promise some amazing things particularly in medicine.

Like viewing sausage being made I suppose it is not always so glamorous to see what is behind the scenes it what it consists of. Meaning you need to be a bit of a technical wonk, especially in chemistry to understand and apply. Yet this book offers a good rendition of what it is all about and the many areas it affects. Well worth the time spent. ( )
