Book Preface

What do you think is the most important idea in all of human knowledge? This question has many possible answers—some practical, some philosophical, and some scientific. If we limit ourselves to scientific answers, mine would be this: the properties of matter are determined by the properties of atoms and molecules. Atoms and molecules determine how matter behaves—if they were different, matter would be different. The properties of water molecules determine how water behaves, the properties of sugar molecules determine how sugar behaves, and the properties of the molecules that compose our bodies determine how our bodies behave. The understanding of matter at the molecular level gives us unprecedented control over that matter. For example, our understanding of the details of the mole-cules that compose living organisms has revolutionized biology over the last 50 years.
