remarkable engineers

this is a fun read if you like these sort of mini-bio things :-
Remarkable Engineers follows similar excellent books on maths&science. But it is an interesting book for its lack of people that I would regard as engineers from Ancient Greece, Arabia, and China - however, within its well-defined model of what an engineer is, it is interesting (seems like you not only have to build something, you have to patent and sell it, and preferably be Scottish:)
