A Consumerís Guide to MEMS & Nanotechnology: Wins 2008 Arizona Book Award

Scottsdale, AZ | Posted on May 13th, 2008

"Ms. Bourne does a phenomenal job of making this aspect of science approachable," writes the Journal of Virginia Science Education. "Along with its conversational format, the images and examples make the information accessible and downright fascinating."

A Consumer's Guide to MEMS & Nanotechnology provides tech enthusiasts and the general public with a comprehensive, easy-to-understand look at MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical systems) and nanotechnology, and the difference they're making in everyday products. Divided into two parts, the first half of the book examines dozens of MEMS devices and nanomaterialsófocusing on how they work, what makes them unique and why they're useful. The second half of the book discusses their role in hundreds of real-life applications.

A Consumer's Guide to MEMS & Nanotechnology (ISBN: 9780979550546; Price: $39.95) is available online at Amazon.com; signed copies of the book can be purchased at www.bourneresearch.com/book_nanomems.htm. Bulk discounts are available; contact Bourne Research at 480-695-0521 for more information.
