A Review of The Dance of Molecules
Volume 3, Issue 1

Matthew J. Dowd, Sterne, Kessler, Goldstein & Fox PLLC

Dance joins a growing list of books which aim to explain the nanotechnology revolution to a general audience. Readers who are familiar with Smalleys work, and nanotechnology in general, will often be led back to thoughts of Smalley while reading Dancein part because of the discussion of buckyballs and nanotubes throughout the book, but also because of the public debate between Smalley and K. Eric Drexler concerning the feasibility of certain proposed nanotechnology devices. Dance provides a quick, highly optimistic, and somewhat entertaining survey of a vast landscape of science. While many readers of this journal may not gain much from Dance, readers with non-technical backgrounds interested in a lively introduction to nanotechnology may find Dance worth the short read.
