Description

Dubai's Burj Khalifa - the world's tallest building - looks nothing like Microsoft's Office Suite, and digital surround sound doesn't work like a citywide telecommunication grid. Yet these engineering feats are all the result of a unique thinking process combining abstract and structured thinking, common sense and creativity. In this groundbreaking new work, Guru Madhavan reveals the extraordinary influence of engineering on society. Drawing on a cast of star engineers like Steve Jobs, the Wright brothers and Thomas Edison, Madhavan explores this mindset and shows how to apply it to life and business in areas as varied as traffic congestion, healthcare and filmmaking. Think Like an Engineer demonstrates how key engineering concepts can help you solve problems, make better decisions and innovate in a complex world.
