Christopher Dunn shares some amazing insight into the 'hows' of some of the most famous architecture of ancient Egypt came to be constructed. I appreciate how detailed he is in describing the precise geometry, and his hypothesis about the types of machining that would be needed to create such magnificent buildings and sculpture.

This book takes a while to read - especially if you are engineered-challenged like I am, but it is well worth the time.
