4.6 out of 5 stars
Thomas Telford
Format: Paperback|Change

on 2 March 2016
Bought this book as a present since we live near to quite a few of the things that Telford had built or had actually visited some of the buildings.
The print in it is a good size so even with not very good eyesight husband has managed to read it and did not want to put it down. Very well written and informative some surprises about things, not technical jargon, just very interesting reading.

Outstandingly successful present for an engineer. It brought to life Thomas Telford and the trials and tribulations of being an engineer in the distance past. A must read for those interested in construction and broader engineering challenges.

I love Rolt for making what may otherwise be dull reading, a good read if, like me, you are into industrial archaelogy and civil engineering. Eminently readable biography of a genius whose work is still there for all to see and use.
