    People want to know more abou t nanotechnology. There is a demand for nanotechnology books that are written for the educated layperson as evidenced by our success with the two books by the Ratners (0131014005 and 0131453076). The focus of this book is how the Nanotechnology industry will

    unfold and impact different industries throughout the world, and who and what will be the drivers of its development. Discussion of Nanotechnology is moving from theories and definitions of Nanotechnology to the practical issues of implementation and adoption in all types of organizations and industries. Nanotechnology cuts across all areas of science and technology; hence, no one individual can provide credibility that he/she knows everything. Therefore this book will have world-class leaders, from Academia, Industry, Venture Capital

    Firms, and Government, contribute chapters outlining their vision of developments, within their area of expertise, over the next 3 - 10 years in product industries such as medical diagnostics or service industries such as Venture Capital.
