Fairly well written - most lay people would have no problem understanding it.

I enjoyed the parts about building and bridges. Totally not interested in electricity and there's too much information about canals.

Totally focused on the West. Asian countries were mentioned only in passing, if it at all. But, I guess this should be expected as it was written in the 50s.
