Review

"Hold on tight! A captivating read at lightening speed that sets the record straight, dispels the fiction behind the facts, and creatively educates the novice to the history and politics of nanoscale technologies....A thorough analysis of questions and concerns raised by the unknowns associated with nanotechnology, the leaders involved with its development, and the international race to compete."

Sonia E. Miller, Founder & Global President

"Dr. Berube has done an excellent job of describing who are the people and organizations behind the nanotechnology revolution. This book is a must read for anyone wishing to invest in nanotechnology or manage a nanotech company. Many years from now, when nanotechnology has permeated every aspect of our lives, Dr. Berube's book will still be referred to for telling how it all got started."
Kelly Kordzik, President of the Texas Nanotechnology Inititative

This is undoubtedly one of the most comprehensive reviews of nanotechnology available today. Dr. Berube is probably one of the most informed professors regarding nanotechnology in the world today, and it is certainly apparent in his book. I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the field, from beginners just starting to understand the technology to those wishing to refine their existing knowledge base.

Berube thinks that Nanotechnology is a Buzz and he writes about Nanotechnology as if it is a conspiracy theory. He tries to find "Truth" in this buzz and never finds it. Need I say more.
