I came to the book as a designer, but the real audience is structural and civil engineers. There are brief dustings of other areas that show how design hubris can impact on other designed systems such as software programming and financial, and surely if you do your own heavy lifting you can take these lessons and apply them, but if you’re looking for this broader discussion you may wish to turn to a different book.
the book content was interesting, however the poorly quantized audio stream made connection to the material difficult. I enjoyed the consideration of failure cycles being connected to engineering generations. Petroski gives ample consideration to design's hand in failure and subsequent analyses. I will likely re-read in the future.
