One person found this helpful. Very poor written book. I was mad at myself for buying it, let alone waste my time reading it. Pass this one by. We gave this to my son, who is an engineering student. He loved it. Format: Paperback. Like Oval Office Oddities, this book does need a fact check every now and again.

Many of the intentions were of good nature and optimistic, but doomed to fail from the start. Not exactly what it advertised. Some of the stories seem like screeds against something the author didn't like. For example, there's a story on how the Concorde was bad.
But the Concorde flew successfully for a very long time. It had problems, but it wasn't a case of something that didn't work; it worked well but eventually wasn't economical. There are other stories of things which worked until technology passed them by. There's a large section about military boondoggles, which is fish-in-a-barrel for a book like this. As another commenter wrote, stories do have errors which someone with a knowledge base can catch.
The story about the adoption of the M omits that the jamming problems were a result of the Army requiring a change in the powder charge without redesigning the mechanism to account for the different forces produced. The egregious sins, though, are against spelling and grammar. It's a poorly-edited book. Note: I read an eBook edition, not the physical edition.
