Engineering: An Illustrated History from Ancient Craft to Modern Technology

Edited by: Tom Jackson

Learning about science has never been more fun and engaging then in the books by Tom Jackson. He has a way of bringing stories and historical narratives into learning certain aspects of science. Such as in this book, Engineering: An Illustrated History from Ancient Craft to Modern Technology he touches on many engineering concepts in short, easy-to-follow descriptives.

The book offers illustrations and diagrams to help you grasp many concepts. With a son at WSU and heading into an Engineering major, this book is better than a textbook. The pages can teach you more than listening to hours of lectures I feel. I wanted this book for him and found myself getting into the pages and even the 8 year old has been grabbing it up and became fascinated. It is not a children’s book per-say, but the discussions are only 1/2-1 page long that cover 100 different marvels so it is not overwhelming at all.
