The Perfectionists: How Precision Engineers Created the Modern World by Simon Winchester
I took a motorcycle engines class at a local college a few years ago to learn vocabulary and mechanical concepts. I had no idea going into it just how precise the whole operation of a motor is! (Give me a break - I was a humanities major. Heh.) When I heard this interview on the radio today, I got kind of excited about this new book...
The author says there are now more transistors in operation than there are leaves on all the trees in the world. 😲
The book has not been released yet and there are already five people on the library waiting list ahead of me! 🤓
