READ â To Forgive Design O imagine the possibility of failure is the most profound mistake engineers can make Software developers realized this early on and looked outside their young field to structural engineering as they sought a historical perspective to help them identify their own potential mistakes By explaining the interconnectedness of technology and culture and the dangers that can emerge from complexity Petroski demonstrates that we would all do well to follow their le.

    READ â To Forgive Design Henry Petroski õ 1 READ CHARACTERS To Forgive Design And I thought I understood failure Boy how I understood failure I thought I had mastered it but evidently there is so much to experience It must be difficult to edit a book on a technical subject written by an expert Perhaps the editor doesn't want to intervene forcefully at the risk of removing technical detail or of interfering with the message This book solidly deserves four stars but it meanders and is freuently repetitive The author
