Engines of Creation: The Coming Era of Nanotechnology
by Eric Drexler
Publisher: Anchor 1986
Number of pages: 320
Nanotechnology, or molecular technology, involves the manipulation of individual atoms and molecules, something the human body already does.In Engines of Creation, Drexler attempts to predict, justify, quantify, and caution us about this important new field in engineering. His book could have been the first and foremost discussion of this fascinating subject.
