Padfield Book

Padfield book coverPick up this book and start reading at random and you will experience a good read that may remind you of your career experiences, or just be a good story. But there is so much good material in this book that it really deserves to be read from beginning to end, particularly if you are an engineering student. It is indeed, as Padfeld claims, 'A Guide to a Wonderful and Mysterious Profession'. -- Vertiflite book review, by David Harding
