Publisher Comments:

For anyone who has ever wondered why suspension bridges don't collapse under eight lanes of traffic, how dams hold back — or give way under — thousands of gallons of water, or what principles guide the design of a skyscraper or a kangaroo, this book aims to ease your anxiety and answer your questions. J.E. Gordon strips engineering of its confusing technical terms, communicating its founding principles in accessible, witty prose.

Synopsis:

"Rich and readable...personal, witty and ironic." --Scientific American
