From the preface: "The target user for this dictionary is the intelligent non-scientist who recognizes a possible technological deficiency, realizes that a fair amount of reading will be required to play keep-up, and who needs an easy-to-understand reference book to better comprehend newspaper and magazine articles on scientific and technological subjects-articles that are often written on the assumption that everybody knows what a superconductor is or the difference between neutrinos and neurons, or quarks and quasars."
