"...a book I wish I had when I was an engineering undergrad." — Lee Teschler, machinedesign.com


Engineering is the most physical of disciplines. Yet its study can seem hopelessly abstract, as hours, weeks, and semesters are devoted to physics, statics, and math, with few examples that tie their concepts to the real world. 101 Things I Learned in Engineering School offers a life raft to the engineering student by presenting concise, clearly illustrated lessons on how engineering thinking can—and sometimes cannot—explain the real world. Lessons range from the simple to the profound: Why shouldn't soldiers march across a bridge? Why do buildings want to float and cars want to fly? What is the difference between thinking systemically and thinking systematically? This unique, informative resource will appeal not only to students, but to general readers, practitioners, and even experienced engineers, who will discover within many fresh insights into familiar principles.
