Description
							K. Eric Drexler is the founding father of nanotechnology. In Radical Abundance,  he shows how rapid scientific progress is about to change our world. Thanks to  atomically precise manufacturing, we will soon have the power to produce  radically more of what people want, and at a lower cost. The result will shake  the very foundations of our economy and environment. Already, scientists have  constructed prototypes for circuit boards built of millions of precisely  arranged atoms. The advent of this kind of atomic precision promises to change  the way we make things—cleanly, inexpensively, and on a global scale. It allows  us to imagine a world where solar arrays cost no more than cardboard and  aluminum foil, and laptops cost about the same.
Reviews

A stimulating tour through current thinking about and future possibilities for nanotechnology, from one of its creators… A crackerjack piece of science and technology writing. - Kirkus

K. Eric Drexler writes in his accessible new book Radical Abundance that the digital revolution is about to give way to a form of production that will radically transform the world economy and that could also save the environment: nanotechnology, or more specifically, atomically precise manufacturing. - Albany Times Union
