Instant Engineering by Joel Levy

Instant Engineering by Joel Levy is the second book I read from the Instant Series and I enjoyed it a lot. Like the previous one, on history, this book too contains about 170 pages of interesting details about engineering theories, discoveries, or scientists. I think this is a great book if you have a teenager, as it opens up a discussion on these subjects.

On each page there are graphs and interesting facts like details on processes or stats. The topics mentioned in the book vary from CRISPR-CAS9 to the bouncing bomb. The first sheets are on general principles, followed by civil engineering, transport, bioengineering, aerospace and armaments, electrical and computers, mechanical. I think the most interesting part of the book was, for me, the one on armaments, which included bow and arrow, crossbow, and gunpowder. It was quite fascinating to discover the history of some of these things and, even more, to see how many were invented in China, and also how old were those inventions.

It’s definitely a book worth having as you might want to refresh your memory and re-read something.
