Excerpt from Nanotechnology Now Newsletter August 16, 2002

In the Nanotechnology Now Newsletter #4 of August 16, 2002 (Note: newsletter requires PW logon, for subscription see below), Rocky Rawstern, editor at large, writes (quoted with permission):

"I just finished reading Douglas Mulhall's outstanding new book "Our Molecular Future: How Nanotechnology, Robotics, Genetics, and Artificial Intelligence Will Transform Our World", and I highly recommend it. Put this one at the top of your list!

Mulhall clearly states a case about how molecular scale engineering [AKA nanotechnology], has the potential to save humankind from global catastrophe, both self inflicted and naturally occurring, and he does so without the use of hyperbole and inflated claims.

From super volcanos [like the one under Yosemite] and nuclear winter inducing asteroid strikes, to tsunamis, earthquakes, hurricanes and drought, mature MNT has the potential to protect us by both forecasting and mitigating -if not eliminating- their devistating effects.

In an easy to read format, with very few forays into geek-speak, Mulhall presents his well considered and thoroughly researched theories.

Overall, an excellent overview for those who wish to understand how disruptive and enabling technologies may save us from ourselves and from mother nature. And along the way you will learn a lot about how nanoscale technologies may enhance our lives, provide abundance for all, and greatly raise the standard of living for everyone.

The logical successor to: Engines of Creation, Unbounding the Future, Nanosystems, and Nano: The Emerging Science of Nanotechnology

Rating: 5 stars."
