it was ok
bookshelves: strategy-leadership-project-managem
Read in July, 2007

Some good insight into the engineering process, and has a lot of research behind it. Some interesting things about an everyday object, and shows how many simple things we use might have deep, winding histories, but unless you're really, really into pencils it becomes a really long read.
