Reviews

"I enjoyed this book a great deal, and I recommended it highly. Articulate and unambiguous, Kupferschmid can be strongly opinionated. Whether in agreement or with occasional skepticism, I found his ideas worthy of thoughtful consideration. I suggest that scientists and engineers regard them in that light as well."
-ThinkLoud, November 2017
