Bridge building is given fascinating life in this accessible, wonderfully illustrated study. Ranging from ancient Rome to the present day, from simple log bridges to marvels of industrial technology, and from well-known landmarks to little-known feats of engineering and art, this book gives readers a new appreciation for that most familiar of structures, the bridge.

I couldn't imagine being interested in this subject, but the artwork and simple explanations of engineering techniques, plus interesting historical facts, made this a good book which I'm glad to have read. It helped that it was fairly short :) Read full review
