By David K. Ferry
This e-book was once derived from a conversation that the writer gave on the foreign convention on complex Nanodevices and Nanotechnology in Hawaii. The publication is about science and engineering, yet isn't on science and engineering. it's not a textbook which develops the certainty of a small a part of the sphere, yet a publication approximately random encounters and concerning the strengths and the foibles of residing as a physicist and engineer for part a century. It offers the author’s own perspectives on technology, engineering, and lifestyles and is illustrated through a couple of vigorous tales approximately a variety of occasions, a few of which formed his lifestyles. Written in a mode that's instantaneously lucid and fascinating, this can be an excellent paintings that weaves the various threads of technology right into a wealthy tapestry.
