The book is written diary form but it is insightful. I didn't realize how important engineering (all kinds) are so very important in our day to day lives and keeping it running smoothly. The reason I read this the book is because Mr. Nyman is a resident at the Pioneer Home where I work and has many connections. He also grew up in Bozeman, Montana-my home town. I didn't understand all the engineering lingo but it was still written simply enough to understand.
