I loved this book when I was a kid. It has all kinds of utopian civil engineering schemes, like a hydroelectric canal from the Mediterranean to the Qattara depression in Egypt.

Who knows, maybe one day they'll dig a tunnel from Calais to Dover.

Naah.

Despite it is quite old, it's still very interesting book. I wish I have read it when I was young;)
