free read Structures Or Why Things Don't Fall Down summary Structures Or Why Things Don't Fall Down ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF J.E. Gordon î 8 free download In a book that Business Insider noted as one of the 14 Books that inspired Elon Musk JE Gordon strips engineering of its confusing technical terms communicating its founding principles in accessible witty proseFor anyone who has ever wondered why suspension bridges don't collapse under eight lanes of traffic how dams hold back or give way under thousands of gallons of water or what principles guide the design of a skyscraper a bias cut dress or a kangaroo this book will Overall I liked but did not love this bookThe author s purpose is to introduce the basic principles of structural engineering in a way that leaves the reader with good intuitions about how structures work an appreciation for how the field has evolved and in turn how we ve evolved with it and optimism for what the future holds On the basis of fulfilling its purpose the author does a great job The author breaks down difficult concepts into understandable chunks He uses math judiciously to make principles relatable By the end of the book you can walk around a construction site and have a much better understanding of what s going on More so you re going to have a humility for all that you don t knowOne of my biggest takeaways personally was how little we understand of why structures work and how much of our recent experience with airplanes and bridges has been only after structures failed catastrophicallyI detested the author s tone To the author s credit he wrote in what certainly seemed to be a sincere tone so I suppose that I may just detest him He writes in the manner of a charming elderly British professor What makes that grating than charming to me are His obfuscation at times by relying on obscure historic or British references His prejudices including rhetorical asides that repeatedly suggest that little boys become engineers and little girls become frivolous targets for little boys to woo and that those who uestion whether British imperialism had downsides should be summarily dismissed
