Is NOT just about building nanomachines.

Check your facts! Bouncing a particle off of an electron does knock a proton out of the nucleus of a gold atom!

This book is an excellent overview of the subject of nanotechnology. It is relatively easy to read considering the complexity and diversity of the subject. The charts, tables and diagrams are well organized and easy to use. The many definitions are clearly boxed and easy to reference. I liked the tables of acronyms, tables of companies and products, and internet references. Chapter quizzes and tests are well designed and make items in the book easier to remember. Nanotechnology is a vast subject involving many areas of chemistry, biology, physics electronics, and much more. As such, I would also recommend a couple of other books in related fields such "Biochemistry Demystified" and "Microbiology Demystified" .

After hearing about 'nanotechnology' I really started to wonder what all the fuss is about. Especially how technology affects the environment. I'm also interested in alternative energy and wondered how that might be related to nanotechnology. I saw this book on the Internet and decided to order it. It's like a textbook, but easier to read than those dry, boring 'school books' I hated so much. In fact it is fun to read. I passed all the tests, too. Now I can carry on an intelligent conversation about nanotechnology, even with the scientists I know.
