Format: Paperback
I just found this book on my wife's (who's a nanoscientist) shelf and started reading it. I must say it is a great introduction to nanotechnology book! It covers everything from working on the nanoscale, through history of nanotech, to nanotechnological evolution and applications/feasibility of nanomaterials. It also touches on subjects such as nanophisics, nanochemistry, and nanobiology. While not being a lab book per se, it is a really good nano-technology textbook that explains the basics and the theory behind the science of the really small.

Most importantly though, it is written in a way that you do not require a Master's Degree or a PhD in Chemical Engineering to understand. Don't get me wrong, it's not a book for kids and would be a good read for anybody who already works in nanotechnology industry but at the same time it explains the nano-tech subjects in a very practical way.

After all, it is not hard to make something easy sound very hard, the real achievement is taking something very sophisticated and explaining it so it's easy to understand. The author(s) of this text-book did a really good job of it! I'd recommend it for both those who are looking for a Nanotechnology for Dummies type of book, as well as teachers and educators who are looking for academic material (I'd say good for high school through college or university level) and people in the nanotechnology field.

This is a really helpful and informative book.

I find the authors detailed compilation fulfilling with their expertise. I'm recommending this book to everyone who wants to know what Nanotechnology really is.

Very informative, interesting and well done. Just the right level of detail if you're looking for an introductory text. Most other nanobooks I have seen/purchased have been too detailed for someone who is not yet an expert.

Format: Paperback
This book is very well written and makes complex ideas understandable and manageable for even a total beginner to nanotechnology. I especially liked the explanation of the Lotus Effect and other natural phenomena such as diffraction gratings that are unique to the nanoscale of physics and chemistry. This book took a very difficult, somewhat esoteric topic, and made it comprehensive and accessible to the reader with no background in the subject.

Even though I and the other reviewers keep saying this is a great book for beginners, I still think this book can and should be taken into the college level classroom. Each chapter lays the foundation for in depth discussions on the development of this particular field of science as well as its applications and future outlook.

It's a good read, the pictures are great, and the accompanying lab manual supplements the chapters very well.
