“Original, highly readable. . . . An extraordinary book.” —Anne Eisenberg, Scientific American
If you're modeling rail transportation in a real work setting, the pictures in this book are exactly what is needed to place operations in persepective.
"Replete with the author's striking photographs, the revised and expanded edition of Infrastructure is a unique and spectacular guide to all the major "ecosystems" of our modern industrial world. In exploring railroad tracks, antenna towers, highway overpasses, power lines, coal mines, nuclear power plants, grain elevators, oil refineries, steel mills, and more, Brian Hayes reveals how our familiar and often-overlooked industrial environment can be as dazzling as nature.
"With a new chapter reflecting on recent natural and technological disasters, Infrastructure is a compelling and clear guide for those who want to explore and understand this mysterious world we've made for ourselves."
