Product Description

If you find yourself doing the quick pocket pat-down known as the Engineers Check If you use a MathCAD analogy to explain the birds and the bees to your teenager If you are so steeped in structural parameters that you chortle over inappropriate variables If you watched The Sopranos just for the bridges pictured in the opening montage you are a candidate for Brian Brenners latest collection of humorous essays that celebrate life as a practicing civil engineer. In this book youll learn valuable skills, like egosurfing and how to use tribbles in a meeting to tell the engineers from the contractors. Youll ponder what bridges would be like if they could sing, and youll discover friendships you never knew bridges could have, through social media. Brenner also invites you to consider serious subjects, like the transition from student to professional engineer and the growth in girth of engineering standards. He speculates on what will happen when, one day, some researcher determines that the current amount of information is good enough. Until then, Too Much Information: Living the Civil Engineering Life will entertain you even while it shows just how well civil engineering can explain life.
