There, That About Covers It

Looking for some good non-technical background on engineering, I find:

  • J.E. Gordon, Structures: Or, Why Things Don't Fall Down (1978)

  • Mathys Levy and Mario Salvadori, Why Buildings Fall Down (1992)

  • Mario Salvadori, Why Buildings Stand Up (1980)
Have I missed anything?

Yes you have missed something. Why do buildings lean? They're waiting for the book in Pisa.
