This review is from: Understanding Nanotechnology (Science Made Accessible) (Paperback)
Understanding Nanotechnology" accomplishes its purpose: introducing a 'new' field of science that encompasses and enhances many disciplines: physics, chemistry, biology, and metallurgy. It is definitely written for a well informed laymen.
Although this technology is 'new' it has had vast improvements in its development since the books publication date. The basic concepts are the same but it's recent applications are numerous.

This review is from: Understanding Nanotechnology (Science Made Accessible) (Paperback)
This book collects papers from good to great contributors. The technical details are reasonable for any one with engineering background. It is more of an introduction to people who are most interested in the nanotube development.
The books explains that nanotechnologies fall between the usual daily macrophysics and the quantum mechanics, and that is why it is so mysterious. However, the book, since written mostly by scientists, does not go into great details on the applications side. It provides a cautiously optimistic view of the future, but does not go into more details in painting a futuristic pictures.

I got this for my 14 year old and grandson and he loved it. Just what he asked for. Good.
