Kinda shrill about the technology, but Eric Drexler's vision (as ripped off from Richard Feynman's famous "Plenty of Room at the Bottom" lecture) is becoming a reality.

Gotta love the Marcus Nanotechnology Research Building here at GT!
Benjamin Spurlock
A fantastic and thought-provoking book about the future of humanity- both the good and the bad. A thorough summary of the science of molecular engineering, from its first inception to the modern era. Anyone interested in nanotechnology needs to read this book.
After reading Eric Drexler's Engines of Creation this gave me a better understanding into how far we've come with nanotechnology. However, the field is moving so fast that this book already seems really outdated.

It was a really nice book, popular introduction to nanotechnology, but its not up to date any more.
