Description: Lively, informative, and easy-to-understand, this book is a fascinating read for scientists across many disciplines and the educate/interested layperson. Beautifully presented with eight pages pf color illustrations, Giant Molecules, Here, There, and Everywhere addresses the nature and role of giant molecules, which are the "source" for polymer chains. Grosberg explains what giant molecules are, how they are formed, where they are applied, and why they are important in everyday life and in science. His simple, non-technical style is complemented by full-color illustrations.

A CD-ROM enclosed with the book provides simulation of typical behavior of polymers, which is extremely useful tool for teaching purposes. This feature will be of special interest to the expert in polymers across many disciplines, including molecular biology, materials science, physics, and chemistry. The CD-ROM also allows the user to create a broad variety of movies simulating an almost arbitrary polymer system, customized to the user's specific needs.

Giant Molecules presents the subject matter much more clearly than the standard scientific text. The book features a foreword written by Pierre-Gille de Gennes, a Nobel Prize Laureate, and each chapter in this fascinating volume is preceded by a quote from such notable sources as Goethe, St. Exupery, and Mark Twain. Written in a simple, non-scientific style, Giant Molecules should be understandable to interested readers at any level, and the color illustrations and CD-ROM add to the appeal of this lively book.
