Having read this book some years ago I have since bought c. 20 copies to give to friends and colleagues interested in Engineering, Science, and the philosophy of either. The introduction makes a good attempt to distinguish between engineering and science and has, I believe, at least some of that story - which has yet to be told properly. But the real meat is in the five case studies each of which shows how, through engineering, science has developed empirically. Scientific 'laws' are just our latest working models.
