I bought three books in the general area of nano-technology at the same time. This was the most technical, the smallest and about twice as expensive as the other two. I appreciate that it is a text book rather than popular science but I resented the high price because there are several typos which make the reading difficult. The general style also makes understanding elusive. On the whole I have given this three stars because I think that when I do crack the meaning of this book it will be useful and instructive, but only three stars because it is expensive for what it is and difficult to work with.
