The language is good and easy, and should be understood by a generally educated layman with some knowledge of pure sciences. Font size and binding of the book is good value for money.

I find these discussions more fascinating.. End of Moore's Law, Side effect of Biotech Revolution, Nano-machines in our bodies, Landing on the moon of Mars, Ranking Civilization, Robot cooks and surgeons, Science as a sword, Creating new life forms, Antimatter Rockets.
