Gr 5-9An excellent introduction to nanotechnology. After a brief historical overview of the science of making miniature machines, Darling discusses the development of the microchip and small mechanical motors. He clearly explains how a micromachine part is made and how a Scanning-tunneling microscope is able to see and manipulate atoms individually. The full-diagrams and illustrations add significantly to the understanding of the text. A fascinating look at an emerging technology.Margaret M. Hagel, Norfolk Public Library System, VA
