Existential Pleasures of Engineering / Edition 2

In a world where engineering plays an increasingly important role, one wonders about the exact nature of the engineering experience in our time. In this book, Florman expertly and perceptively explores how engineers think and feel about their profession, dispelling the myth that engineering is cold and passionless, and celebrating it as something vital and alive.

Although I haven't finished it yet, this book has been a great source of inspiration. It lets me know that what I do is good and appreciated. As a civil engineer, I design mostly infrastructure. These are things that generally go unoticed after time (water towers, sewer mains, water mains, airport improvements). This book details how others before me have achieved peace knowing that they have contributed greatly to the improvement of the society. A good read.
