Wiley Survival Guide to Nanotechnology: Tiny Structure, Big Ideas and Grey Goo explains nanotechnology to an audience that does not necessarily have a scientific background. It covers all aspects, including the new areas of biomedical applications and the use of nanotechnology to probe the "quantum vacuum." After discussing the present state of the art in nanotechnology, the book makes estimates of where these technologies are going and what will be possible in the future.

Chris Binns is Professor of Nanoscience at the Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Leicester and head of the Condensed Matter Physics group. His research career has been in Surface Physics and Nanoscience and has included substantial programmes at central facilities. He is the author of the introductory textbook "Introduction to Nanoscience and Nanotechnology" published by Wiley.
