Steven Brindle - Brunel - The Man Who Built The World (2nd Hand Paperback)
ISBN / GTIN-13 : 9780753821251
One of the great minds of the 19th century, Isambard Kingdom Brunel was responsible for some of the most impressive engineering feats of his day.
By the age of 26, he had been appointed chief engineer of the Great Western Railway, linking Bristol to London. His love of steamships led him to build a series of revolutionary vessels, including the Great Britain - the first steamship to cross the Atlantic.
Illustrated with a wealth of blueprints, drawings, and rare photographs, this new biography tracks the life and achievements of this Victorian-era genius.
A fascinating portrait of ambition and innovation, Brunel provides ample evidence to support the claim that Brunel was indeed “the man who built the world.”

"This paperback is a punchy expletive on Brunel's life and his thoughts and acts. I liked the text and it was gripping. You didn't want to put the book down. Illustrations are enough to give one an idea, but wouldn't overwhelm the non-technical amongst us.
I'd recommend this to anyone, engineers included. A good read." - Amazon Review.
