              Think Like An Engineer: Inside the Minds that are Changing our Lives (EPUB ebook)

              At last engineering is getting its due; engineers are finally cool. But few of us understand the engineering mindset. It's the mindset that came up with flatpack furniture, disposable nappies, and the postal code; that solved Stockholm's traffic and the problem of bank closing ti...mes (the hole-in-the-wall); and whose seemingly simple ideas have saved countless lives, with innovations such as painting a line behind traffic lanes and combining GPS with 999. It's a mindset much like a Swiss-army knife - multipurpose, combining structured and abstract thinking, common sense and great imagination, and cross-pollinating information from every possible sector. With the help of a cast of star engineers and fascinating, unexpected real world examples, Madhavan offers a framework for thinking creatively, systematically and strategically so that we can all learn to make better decisions in a complex world.
