I’m grateful to Henry Petroski, a well known engineering author for his ongoing recommendations for my Engineering Stories. In addition to providing an endorsement on the back of my book, Dr. Petroski, the Aleksandar S. Vesic Professor of Civil Engineering and a professor of history at Duke University included Engineering Stories within a list of several other fiction and non-fiction stories about engineers in an article in Prism, a magazine of the American Society for Engineering Education. Click on the following and read his recommendations. I plan to read some of the other stories he recommends. Perhaps you will too.
About Kenneth Richard Hardman
AncestorClips are very short stories about very real people. Each clip nurtures awareness of a time, a place, and the character of a man or woman who cultivated a path for our life. The reader feels the good, the obstacles, the happiness, the sadness, and the overcoming. They cheer us, make us resilient when challenged, give us purpose, and connect us to our multi-generational family. Each story is followed by reflections from the author and readers sharing how the story strengthened or inspired them.
