  • What's Really Happening in Nanoinnovation

    I was lucky to get an advance copy of this book and I was really impressed by the amount of information and examples. The author did a great job of ferreting out innovations that are really happening, at universities, companies and government labs. This book is not only for managers as the title suggests but also for students, teachers and anyone who wants to know about what's really happening in nanotechnology. This is also fun reading - there is a quiz in the first chapter, lots of photos and nanoscale images. The author interviewed many of the geniuses who are developing nanoinnovations and the "back stories" of how the ideas for innovations are developed is really fascinating and colorful. This is not only informative and up to date but also entertaining. The writing style is informal and fast reading. I kept finding new nuggets on every page. Highly recommended for anyone who "needs to know" about nanotechnology - and also for anyone who simply wants a clear, interesting and entertaining update on the coolest things happening in nanotech.
