    Avis de l'équipe

    The job done by engineers is varied and complex, and in this succinct guide, professor Natasha McCarthy, a policy advisor at the Royal Academy of Engineering, explains precisely what engineers are responsible for. Including a history of engineering, specialties within the field, and engineering's future, this audiobook provides a solid basis of understanding for those outside the field, and those who are interesting in pursuing studies in engineering. An upbeat narration from voice performer Dave Ferguson brings energy to the material, making it an easy, engrossing listen.


    The work of engineers surrounds us: from the phones in our pockets to the layout of our cities. These days, engineers even transport some of us to the moon. But the skills that brought the world clean water and telecommunications also produced polluting technologies that could threaten its future.

    Engineering explores the scientific, social, and philosophical implications inherent in the challenges faced by engineers throughout history. From Roman viaducts to bionic limbs, humans have used fascinating and diverse feats of engineering to overcome their limitations. Revealing the widespread impact that this has had on culture, knowledge, and the environment, McCarthy presents a future in which engineering is crucial to saving the planet.

    A book more on climate change than engineering

    What would have made Engineering: Bolinda Beginner Guides better?

    If the title of the book is misleading. The title should be "What should an engineer do in the world? Fix climate changes because they created it."

    What could Natasha McCarthy have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Make the book more about discipline of engineering. Write more logically and less polemically. Delve deeper into the why in respect the what engineers have come up with to satisfy their own needs and the needs of the wider public.

    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Dave Ferguson?

    He did ok. The problem was a book that did not have a correct title.

    not as inspiring or interesting as I'd hoped for .

    I had hoped it would inspire me to pursue engineering but it was really monotonous

    Poorly advertised

    This book was almost entirely focused on global warming which is not necessarily a bad thing but there was certainly no indication that that would be the case beforehand.

    Australian accent makes book really enjoyable

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Engineering: Bolinda Beginner Guides?

    It was memorable to hear that Leonardo da Vinci considered himself an engineer - rather than a painter, or, was it his many skills the foundation of what made him an artist of engineering?

    What does Dave Ferguson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I loved the Australian sounding accent! It really made this book easy and enjoyable to listen to. I am not sure how fast I would have went through the book if I would have had to read it on my own.
