Flying cars, space travel for everyone, the elimination of poverty and hunger, and powerful new tools to combat disease, and even aging. These are some of the amazing predicted developments of nanotechnology, the coming science of designing and building machines at the molecular and atomic levels. Will this new scientific revolution be for better or worse? Some commentators have described utopias; others have prophesied disaster. Find out the likely reality from an expert, Dr. J. Storrs Hall, in this absorbing insider’s guide to the near future.
That's from the jacket of Nanofuture: What's Next for Nanotechnology, on sale now at Barnes & Noble, Borders, Walmart, Amazon, and better bookstores everywhere.
This may be the book I wish I'd written. I haven't read it yet, but based on the description and the reviews, I can't wait.
"...excellent introduction to nanotechnology...can be enjoyed and appreciated by the interested layman as well as the professional scientist." - Saul Levy, Department of Computer Science, Rutgers University
"Readers excited by the promises of nanotechnology will find this book a gripping read." - Publishers Weekly
"...the best introduction to our nanotechnological future published in the last 10 years...I loved this book! Buy it!" - Robert A. Freitas Jr., author of Nanomedicine
"If you thought the present century will bring less change than the industrial revolution did, think again." - Nick Bostrom, Faculty of Philosophy, Oxford University
I know Josh (the author), and regard him as one of the best in the world at thinking scientifically, sociologically, philosophically, and creatively all at the same time. He's an amazing guy and we wish him great success with this book.
