Each book in this set covers the engineering behind a different type of structure and uses infographics to point out the features of a famous example of each. Various bridges, dams, highways, roller coasters, skyscrapers, and stadiums from around the world are shown in clear photos. Labels make connections with glossary terms, which appear in bold print within the text. There are also diagrams of the forces acting on each structure. Current trends, such as the use of dams for hydroelectric power or how the highways of today compare to the roads used for a horse and buggy in the past, and possible future advances are also discussed. VERDICT A solid addition to STEM collections. These titles will appeal to fans of construction books.
