This looks like a very interesting read - I am on my way to Amazon now (Click Click). I think it will really fascinate my teenage son and engineer husband too. I appreciated the quote:

Early on, Kuprenas also wanted to be an artist. "It might seem odd, but in both professions you use your imagination and create new things," he said.

I believe engineering is extremely creative - that is one of the most fun aspects of it...

This is great stuff and I'd love to read this book. The story about the soldiers on the bridge is particularly intriguing. About thirty years ago, there was a similar story about a Big Ten football stadium that had to be beefed up because students in the upper deck would sway back and forth to a cheer that happened to be very close to the the natural frequency of the structure.

@vimal: Exactly, it is something that we all should be proud of. I think its just another factor which adds to our pride.
