In over 200 delightful short essays Bill captures the creativity
and impact of engineers. He talks of their spectacular achievements
- jets, satellites, skyscrapers, and fiber optics - but draws his
deepest insights from the everyday, the quotidian. He finds beauty,
elegance and meaning in Ferris wheels, Tupperware, Slinkys, mood
rings, waterless urinals and Velcro. Delivered originally on public
radio between 1999 and 2006, each essay is a small slice of the
world created by engineers. The essays also illuminate and inform
about the important topics of our day by showing how intertwined
engineering and technology are with terrorism, security,
intellectual property and our cultural legacy.
