The British journal Nature recently reviewed Ed Regis' new book,
"Nano: the emerging science of nanotechnology;" published by
Little, Brown; 1995.

The review was by David E. H. Jones and was over two pages long.
Jones spent much of the review attacking the technical feasibility
of nanotechnology.  He displayed an amazing ignorance of the field,
and had rather obviously not even read "Nanosystems: Molecular
Machinery, Manufacturing and Computation" by K. Eric Drexler, Wiley 1992.

As the review was in a (sometimes) reputable journal and might be assumed
by those unacquainted with the field to have some merit, I wrote a detailed
critique.  This critique can be found at URL
