   Shallow
However, it skips over robotics and gives mechatronics a mention. The author includes her extremely liberal bias on several irrelevant issues, along with putting Bill Nye the science guy alongside Archemedes as a serious engineer. She overlooked many worthy candidates to include a list of black women engineers on the same list. Their inclusion is not problematic, but the fact that vshe picked them on racial and gender lines instead of their accomplishments.

   Too basic for Inspired Engineers
I bought this book for an intelligent teenager who shows talent in engineering. I find the correct content of this book is descriptive, but it is too skimpy. It does not fill a page beyond generalities, and there is much more to write about this topic and go much more than the less-than-200 pages in this book. The drawings are better suited for a book for toddlers. Fifteen dollars is not expensive, but is too much to pay for this book.

   Doesn’t really delve into any topic. More of a career primer.
This book is intended to spark interest in engineering potential careers. The basic concepts of engineering are quickly glossed, but are not addressed in a substantive way.

   A great gift for the teenager in your life!
A book written by an expert in the field of STEM, who believed that she could be an engineer as a teenager. A great gift for teenagers interested in chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and civil engineering. Dr. McCauley has been mentoring teens over the years and now she is helping more with writing this book. I love the testimonials from my fellow engineers included in this book. Simple language, but well written! I am donating a local high school with a copy each. Hopefully this book inspires their students to explore the exciting and ever changing world of STEM.

   Great inspiration for teens!
This book contains background on engineering, great role models and examples to encourage students who are considering or who have a career in engineering. It also provides a helpful survey to help students discover which discipline may be the best fit for them. I suggest this book for current engineers and anyone who wants to understand engineering better and its positive effects on our world!
