I gave this book 3 stars because it is exactly like its title: A gentle introduction to the Next Big Idea, and it is exactly what I can like but never really like. Fairly speaking, if you want to read something to have an overview about current technology, this is a decent choice, 4 stars and a half maybe. Compared to Understanding Nanotechnology of Scientific American, this book is much clearer without losing much technical insights.

Highly recommend this book if you want a quick, lightly-readi

كتاب علمي حول تكنولوجيا النانو القادمة بقوة في السنوات القادمة
الكتاب مترجم إلى العربية سنة 2011 ، لكن تأليف الكتاب كان في سنة 2003 وهذا ما قد يجعل المعلومات قديمة بعض الشيء وهذا أمر مهم في الجوانب العلمية التي تتطور بشكل مطرد وبوتيرة سريعة جداً
الكتاب مع أنه مقدمة ، لكنه متخصص ويحتوي الكثير على المصطلحات العلمية المملة أحياناً ( وخاصة التعريب الممل وغير المفهوم في كثير من الأحيان )
عموماً المعلومات شيقة ومفيدة للمهتمين في هذه التكنولوجيا الجديدة

dreadful. one can literally fall asleep reading this while walking. at night, its presence makes owls fall from trees.

I read it as a PDF.
The best book for a reader who hear the buzz about nano and want to know what's it about.
قرأته كنسخة الكترونية
كتاب ممتاز . يوضح بلغة مبسطة عن ماهيّة تقنية النانو ، وآفاقها في شتى المجالات
رائع لغير المتخصص ، بل للقارئ للبسيط حتى .
