the book content was interesting, however the poorly quantized audio stream made connection to the material difficult. I enjoyed the consideration of failure cycles being connected to engineering generations. Petroski gives ample consideration to design's hand in failure and subsequent analyses. I will likely re-read in the future.
What did you love best about To Forgive Design?
Petroski's insight into the important role of inevitable failures is a reminder of just how much we take for granted. The point that experienced and new engineers (and all designers) can get out of this book is that failed designs can teach us where we misunderstood.
