Product description


'Many have tried and failed to write engaging and compelling books about nanotechnology. Forbes and Grimsey succeed because they take the reader on a tour of the highlights, and in their company it is like visiting an exquisite grotto: compelling, mysterious and extremely beautiful. If you don't come away from this book feeling intellectually exhilarated, then you need to stay in more.' --Professor Mark Miodownik, Author of Stuff Matters and regular contributor to BBC2's Science Club

'The nano world can be stunningly beautiful, and NanoScience: Giants of the Infinitesimal demonstrates this with more than 100 gorgeous images drawn from research across the discipline ... a good overview of the work that individual nano scientists are doing to explore this tiny, mesmerisingly beautiful world.' --Physics World

'Lucid text and visuals combine to dazzling effect in this introduction to nanotechnology.' --Nature

About the Author

Peter Forbes, with a background as a scientist went on to become a poet and editor of Poetry Review for eleven years before turning to writing science books. In 2011 he won the Warwick Prize for Writing. Tom Grimsey is a sculptor with particular interest in polymorphic sculpture and science.
