Two outstanding titles are top picks for science audiences seeking to keep up with the latest details. J. Storrs Hall's Nanofuture: What's Next For Nanotechnology (1591022878, $28.00) explores a diverse set of possibilities for nanotechnology's applications, from flying cars and the elimination of hunger to new smart machines built at the molecular and atomic levels. Dr. Hall himself is a leading research in nanotechnology who invented utility fog and explores the new technology's hopes, potentials, and dangers. Cathy Cobb & Monty L. Fetterolf's The Joy Of Chemistry: The Amazing Science Of Familiar Things (1591022312, $26.00) challenges the idea chemistry is a complex, challenging science not for lay readers. The authors are both professional chemists as well as educators, and here provide easy illustrations of basic chemistry using everyday experience as the foundation for understandable examples. From how to assemble a bottle rocket using basic household chemicals to gemstone chemistry, there is much of interest in The Joy Of Chemistry--even for readers with no scientific background whatsoever.
