A celebration of the life and technical achievements of Isambard Kingdom Brunel by two of the world’s leading specialistsOver the course of his life, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, dominates his profession.Today, he remains the most famous engineer in history, the quintessence of the volcanic creative forces that at the Industrial Revolution – and made modern society into a modern society.Brunel’s extraordinary talents were designed by remarkable opportunities – over and above his appointment as an engineer at the new Great Western Railway, at the age of 26 – but it is his nature to take nothing for granted, and to seek out every project, whether it was the longest railway still planned, or, the largest ship ever imagined, from early principles.Live a hard life for those who served him, he finally sacrificed his life for his work in his tragic and premature death at the age of 53.His legacy, however, is all around us, in the railways and bridges that he personally designed, and in his greatest influence.This new book is based on Brunel’s own diaries, letters and sketchbooks to understand his life, time and work.
