Filled with little known fascinating historical facts. A few I'd heard before but most are new to me. Very good narrator on this one.
Being an engineer, I think I was predisposed to liking this book. It's a fascinating study of how an engineer is presented with seemingly insurmountable problems and overcomes them by determination and skill. Shute never wrote a book that wasn't completely engrossing and this, his last book, is no exception.
