If you have even the most casual interest in the people who BUILD just about everything important in human history from 3,500 BCE up through the 21st century, you will find this book combines interesting with great fun in the best way possible. The facts are carefully chosen so they are significant, but also highly entertaining and digestible; fantastic photographs and drawings bring everything to life. Even the timelines are lively and easy. This book is superb for a wide variety of ages and interests, either for yourself or as a superb gift. The cover art of Brooklyn Bridge is special: vivid, colorful, tasteful. WOW. I expected to find it educational, & yes: it succeeds as a wonderful panorama of engineers throughout history. But I did not expect also to have such FUN.
