Engineering book review/discussion


This engineering book review/discussion explores common themes of two books: Brilliant!: Shuji Nakamura And the Revolution in Lighting Technology by Bob Johnstone and How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie.


How do these two books relate with one another, and what lessons can be learned by combining and contrasting their messages? How can the story in Brilliant! relate to the advice given in How to Win Friends and Influence People? What are potential lessons learned for engineers today who are leading in the edges of innovation? The reviewers explore these two books together by combining common themes for discussion

points and add their own experiences from their engineering careers. Their goals are to link literature to current-day challenges and for participants to:


  • Gain different perspectives, both from literature and from the reviewers.
  • Get inspired toward action: to try something new, read one of the books, or make new connections with others.
  • Inspire others in their engineering work.
