 About the Book 

K. Eric Drexler envisions a world in which poverty and hunger no longer exist, because food can be made out of thin air, and we never grow old, because cells can be regenerated as swiftly as they age. Nanotechnology, the manipulation of matter atMoreK. Eric Drexler envisions a world in which poverty and hunger no longer exist, because food can be made out of thin air, and we never grow old, because cells can be regenerated as swiftly as they age. Nanotechnology, the manipulation of matter at the molecular level, is what hes betting will make it happen. Ed Regis tells the story of Drexlers forays into this new science, showing the scientists attempts to convince his colleagues that he hasnt descended into pulp fiction. He also fills in a lot of the historical and technical background, from the 19th-century arguments over whether atoms exist to modern experiments that have isolated and manipulated single atoms. Regiss prose is clear and straightforward, but not without a sly sense of humor. Apart from Drexlers own Engines of Creation, this is the book on nanotechnology to read.
