Very good. Lots of science, history and character portraits of obsessive engineers.

A great read. Very dense, in that there is a lot of descriptive text relating to engineering concepts and process so not easy to skim read! Engages the brain (in my case) and any book that quotes LJK Setright has to be a winner I reckon.
