Engineering is more than nuts and bolts, bricks and mortar; more than the tangible evidence of man-made solutions, and imaginative buildings. McCarthy reveals how every aspect of our lives has been engineered: from how we travel and communicate to our very means of survival. Natasha McCarthy is policy advisor at the Royal Academy of Engineering, UK.


NBN
Along with an introduction to the basic nuts and bolts, McCarthy explores the philosophy and cultural history of engineering, and reveals how essential it has been in shaping civilization as we know it. With an emphasis on the impact of engineering on society and the world, McCarthy offers a masterful commentary on how engineers and engineering have made our world, from daily appliances and national infrastructure, to the shape of our future.
