How Infrastructure Works: The Systems Shaping Our World

Despite it being all around us, we rarely think about infrastructure—things like water and sewage, electricity, transportation, and telecommunications—until something breaks down. In this audiobook summary, Deb Chachra—a professor of engineering at Olin College—explains why we should pay more attention to the technological networks that surround us. Deb shares some key ideas from her book How Infrastructure Works: Inside the Systems That Shape Our World, and discusses the importance of seeing and understanding what are possibly the most complicated systems created by humanity.
