Why read it?

1 author picked Junkers as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

Benjamin Wallace is my new favorite so far. Junkers is sort of sci-fi, but not so far-fetched as a galaxy far, far, away. And it’s about malfunctioning robots—I even wrote a musical comedy about that. It’s a funny topic.

From David's list on to give engineers new perspectives.
