    Description

    Yale University Press Force What It Means to Push and Pull Slip and Grip Start and Stop by Henry Petroski

    An eminent engineer and historian tackles one of the most elemental aspects of life: how we experience and utilize physical force_x000D__x000D_"Another gem from a master of technology writing."-Kirkus Reviews_x000D__x000D_Force explores how humans interact with the material world in the course of their everyday activities. This book for the general reader also considers the significance of force in shaping societies and cultures._x000D__x000D_Celebrated author Henry Petroski delves into the ongoing physical interaction between people and things that enables them to stay put or causes them to move. He explores the range of daily human experience whereby we feel the sensations of push and pull, resistance and assistance. The book is also about metaphorical force, which manifests itself as pressure and relief, achievement and defeat._x000D__x000D_Petroski draws from a variety of disciplines to make the case that force-represented especially by our sense of touch-is a unifying principle that pervades our lives. In the wake of a prolonged global pandemic that increasingly cautioned us about contact with the physical world, Petroski offers a new perspective on the importance of the sensation and power of touch._x000D_show more
