possibly good for children

this book does not go beyond what a British School child would be expected to know having studied biology chemistry and physics to the age of 18.

while I anderstand that it may be useful to someone who went through the American education system I was disappointed to see that the book adresses almost none of the exciting areas of research that are blooming within nanotechnology and avoids any sort of useful depth for information.

I feel swindled

A very general overview of nanotechnology

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I think overall it is too basic, seems to be aimed at very general public, but for anyone who is already a scientist it is too light

Would you be willing to try another book from Deborah Gibbs Sauder? Why or why not?


What aspect of the narrator’s performance might you have changed?

Audio is clear, but more a lecture style than good narration

Do you think A Bridge to the Future: Understanding Nanotechnology, Part 1 needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yes but much more scientific details and leading edge technology

Any additional comments?

Overall the new things I learnt was limited, although generally of some interest. Think this audio book relevant facts could have been condensed.
