really liked it
Read in November, 2011

It took me a while to navigate through some of the more dry sections of this book. I can understand why it is number one in Amazon’s section on books about engineering. The research by McCullough is excellent. I enjoyed the political background more so than the tedious technical detail, but that may be personal taste and others may think otherwise. I’m planning to take a trip to the bridge soon and this book will make you appreciate the accomplishment the bridge was in the 1870’s and 80’s.
