Good book but a bit dry 13 Sep 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Learned a great deal about the engineering process. The book is not a interesting as I had hoped. The writing is informative but no spark of excitement about a fascinating engineering marvel
A fun read 10 Sep 2013
By Marshall - Published on
Format: Paperback
This was a fun and enjoyable book about the building of EPCOT from the perspective of the electrical engineers that made everything work. It gave a true sense of how crazy those days were, and how dedicated the engineers were to getting the job done. A nice, alternative history of EPCOT that tells the story from the lower ranks. It's a fast read, written in a very conversational manner. There are some typos and maybe the book could have used some more editing, but frankly that made the book charming. Highly recommended for EPCOT fans.
