Design and Circumstance

Henry Petroski is an extraordinary engineer who has been called the "poet laureate of technology." He explores the histories of everyday things and exposes them as engineering marvels.

Favorite titles include:

Petroski writes about his personal life in Paperboy: Confessions of a Future Engineer and has several additional titles about engineering:

Always observant, Petroski reminds us "that if we forget the history of the technology that we're working in, we can be taken by surprise."
