If you use a MathCAD analogy to explain the birds and the bees to your teenager...

If you watched The Sopranos just for the bridges pictured in the opening montage...

If you keep your ties for so long, they start to curl up...

If you evaluate infrastructure for your daughter's hamsters...

If you've ever built a sand castle to study soil mechanics...

Then you need Brian Brenner's 3 widely popular books, celebrating life as a practicing civil engineer, Too Much Information: Living the Civil Engineering Life, Don't Throw This Away!: The Civil Engineering Life, and Bridginess: More of the Civil Engineering Life. The 3-book set isnow available for one low price of $96 (ASCE Member $72).These collections of essays and humorous anecdotes display Brenner's distinctive combination of quirky humor and engineering "right stuff." They encompass the full range of Brenner's talent as a writer, as well as an engineer. With his charming and fluid style, Brenner makes civil engineering funny, interesting, and at times, even glamorous.

Praise for Don't Throw This Away! The Civil Engineering Life

"Brenner's honest, assured voice, brainiac populism, and bite-sized essays make this a quirky, addictive winner that should bring out the 'inner civil engineer' in a wide cross-section of readers."—Publishers Weekly
