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

In this unique primer, an experienced civil engineer presents the physics and fundamentals underlying the many fields of engineering. Far from a dry, nuts-and-bolts exposition, however, 101 Things I Learned in Engineering School probes real-world examples to show how the engineer's way of thinking can illuminate questions 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 systematically?

101 Things I Learned in Engineering School is an informative resource for students, general readers, and even experienced engineers, who will discover within many provocative insights into familiar principles.
