drexler has hit back at the critics with this astounding book
he is using this to prove that he does know what he is talking about and lays down guid lines as to how he sees 'his' technology progressing, and most importantly he provs it, oh boy does he prove it, many many many equations and formulae are scattered throughout the text and every one is relevant. up to the writing of this drexler was seen as a dreamer, a sci-fi buff, but now he has proved himself to be a 'real' scientist even if some people still remain unconvinced that his science itself is 'real', but then he does keep on insisting it is an engineering field!
proves all hie critics wrong, but isn't light (unlike nano by ed regis) or easy to read. it is a scientific paper, his PhD thesis, turned into a book remember.
