What People are Saying About This

Ronald Oxburgh

"The twentieth century brought us two new views of the world we live in and two new levels of understanding -- the awesome views from space and the fascinating and astonishing images of the atomic world from the electron microscope.
There are many popular presentations of the former but this volume is one of the first to give us a superbly illustrated glimpse of the micro-world that controls almost every aspect of our every day lives -- both useful and enjoyable!"--Lord
Ronald Oxburgh, Chairman of The Shell Transport and Trading Company, and a member of the House of Lords, United Kingdom

Alan Lightman
Nanoscale helps us visual the invisible world of the ultra-small, combining both beautiful pictures with solid scientific explanation in a joyful union of art and science.

Peter Pesic
Every page of the Deffeyes's engaging texts and striking illustrations reveals surprises about the nanoarchitecture of our world and conveys how exciting and delightful science can be. Beautiful, amusing, and richly informative, this book deserves to be a classic.
