IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine:

"This handbook is more like an applications-oriented encyclopedia of the current state of the art in nanotechnology… the strong point is its focus on many of the practical aspects of nanotechnology. There are many illustrations, graphs, photographs, and drawing that accompany the text to clearly convey the information, and there is a very extensive reference listing… Anyone working in or learning about the field of nanotechnology would find this and excellent working handbook.’’

Chemistry and Industry:

"There has been a need for a ‘generally accessible how-to guide to nanotechnology for specialists and nonspecialists.’ Now there is a bulky volume with he clear amibition to fulfil this need. With more than 1200 pages, 972 illustrations, 90 authors and 38 chapters, and an accompanying CD containing the full searchable text, it looks like a book matching the breadth and importance of the subject matter."

Materials World:

"The Handbook of Nan;otechnology outstandingly succeeds in its aim… It will be extremely useful to graduate researchers and scientists wishin to expand their knowledge. … All sections are well written and well laid out with excellent references and illustrations – both clear line diagrams and micrographs… It really is a magnificent volume and every scientific library and nanotechnology group should have a copy."

Chemistry in Australia :

"The 38 essays in this massive volume describe a wide range of techniques used in fabricating nanometer-scale materials and machines. Most of the authors provide brief sketches of the historical background behind, or physical-chemical principles underlying, the fabrication techniques. While the authors allude to numerous practical applications, the principal focus is on the techniques themselves: physical and chemical processes for designing materials and machines with specific properties and functions. Despite the many authors and fields of science and engineering covered, the volume does appear as a unit. The writing is generally clear and precise, and the numerous grayscale illustrations and photographs are of excellent quality and assist visualization of the techniques described. A CD-ROM includes all of the printed matter as pdf files …"

"This book, and associated CD-ROM, should be on every nanotechnology researcher’s shelf. It is possibly the most comprehensive text available on aspects of nanophysics and nano-fabrication and as such it will be an invaluable reference text… The material and diagrams within the book are factual and accurate, and are presented with significant emphasis on real, practical examples of nanotechnology. .. Nanotechnology is a very diverse area, covering physical, chemical, biological and engineering aspects, and the range of authors who have contributed to this book reflect this diversity…Its major strengths over other published literature are in the area of physics and engineering, and there are truly excellent sections on fabrication and microscopic techniques…Overall, l would buy this book, and recommend it to my colleagues and research students. It is well written, and will be a significant resource for teaching and research."

Neal Lane, University Professor, Rice University - Former Special Assistant to President Clinton and Director of the NSF:

"Professor Bhushan has harnessed his own knowledge and experience, gained in several industries and universities, and has assembled about 100 internationally recognized authors from three continents to write more than 40 chapters. The authors come from both academia and industry ¿ [This book] is a timely addition to the literature on nanotechnology , which I anticipate will stimulate further interest in this important new field and serve as an invaluable resource to members of the international scientific and industrial community."

Polymer News:

"The integrity and authoritativeness of information provided in the Handbook of Nanotechnology is guaranteed by an experienced editor and an international team of authors which have well summarized in their chapters information on fundamentals and applications of Nanotechnology."
