When I sit down for a read, the last thing I think of is grabbing a civil engineering book even though that’s my full-time job. At first, I was very skeptical of what the contents of these books were, but I soon found out that they could expand my thinking and open my viewpoint to new ways of building.

Engineering is complicated, so sitting down with a good book can help me focus and learn new techniques. Some helped me brush up on structures, while others can help you remember the previous information you read for some exam. Either way, they help you keep your foundations and become stronger in your field.

That said, it can be a bit confusing on where to start. The best books I’ve picked up are ones that don’t usually reference primary material or exam material.

Focusing on foundation, structures, and even advanced techniques like chemical or geotechnical engineering help to open up new career opportunities. Some of the best books are the ones written by professionals in the field.

So, if you’re a bit lost on where to start:

  • If you’re currently in school, check out civil engineering textbooks and study guides to help you learn and understand the material.
  • If you’ve graduated, ask yourself what type of engineering you’d like to learn about. Civil engineering has multiple advancements that don’t always require a degree. So, finding books with similar interests in career paths can help open new doors to you.

That said, here’s a list of books you should consider reading:

A Timber Framer's Workshop: Joinery, Design & Construction of Traditional Timber Frames

Taller de un carpintero de madera: carpintería, diseño y construcción de estructuras de madera tradicionales

This book is fantastic for teaching the old world and increasingly rare joinery techniques for framing. These techniques were used for houses that lasted for hundreds of years, far longer than many of the modern western homes of today.

The Great Bridge: The Epic Story of the Building of the Brooklyn Bridge

The Path Between the Seas: The Creation of the Panama Canal, 1870-1914

The Path Between the Seas: The Creation of the Panama Canal, 1870-1914

Historian David McCullough wrote one of the most factually accurate and detailed books about the construction of the Panama Canal. Why would such a book interest a leader? Because it shows how a great thing was achieved, and what it took to take the project from the paper and make it a reality.

Great things are never simple and easy to achieve. It takes creativity. Mistakes happen and losses are sustained. You have to rethink your strategy. You need a B, C or even a D plan. You do whatever it takes to make it happen. This is a valuable lesson for any leader and entrepreneur.

The Power Broker: Robert Moses y la caída de Nueva York

The Power Broker: Robert Moses y la caída de Nueva York

Me tomó 15 días leer las 1165 páginas de esta monstruosidad que relata el ascenso de Robert Moses. Yo tenía 20 años. Fue uno de los libros más magníficos que he leído. Moses construyó casi todos los demás proyectos importantes de construcción moderna en la ciudad de Nueva York. El público no pudo detenerlo, el alcalde no pudo detenerlo, el gobernador no pudo detenerlo y solo una vez el presidente de los Estados Unidos pudo detenerlo. Pero en última instancia, ya sabes a dónde debe llevarnos el cliché. Robert Moses era un imbécil. Puede que haya tenido más cerebro, más impulso, más estrategia que otros hombres, pero no tenía más compasión. Y finalmente el poder lo convirtió en algo monstruoso.

Nunca se ha contado la mitad: la esclavitud y la creación del capitalismo estadounidense

Nunca se ha contado la mitad: la esclavitud y la creación del capitalismo estadounidense

It's a heart-wrenching but eye-opening look at the safe ways America looks back at slavery and its impact on modern capitalism. During an election cycle focused on populism and anger, this is a book every American should read.

The Mysterious Island

The Mysterious Island

I will pick Jules Verne’s Mysterious Island for a non-business favorite. I don’t claim this is the best book out there. Not even in its category (whatever that is). But I adored this book as a young boy. I remember that the night when I was approaching the end of the book a power outage happened, and I finished it reading it with the help of candle light. I love this book that much. Jules Verne introduces a world full of mysteries, with challenges that seem insurmountable but with heroes that always find ingenious ways to overcome them using science and strength of character. It is also part of a Universe (like the Marvel one), building on some of the reveals from “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea” or “In Search of the Castaways”. Maybe your readers shouldn’t rush and grab this one unless they are 14 yrs old or deeply into steampunk adventure stories. But it meant a lot to me at the time. Maybe it sparked my interest in sciences or cultivated my sense of adventure.

American Prison: A Reporter's Undercover Journey into the Business of Punishment

Prisión estadounidense: el viaje encubierto de un reportero al negocio del castigo

Sometimes the only way to get the full story is to put yourself into it as an ‘immersion journalist.’ Shane Bauer wanted to know more about for-profit prisons so he got a job in one as a correction officer, or guard, and reports his experiences grippingly while weaving in the social and economic factors that give rise to these horrors. His book reveals much that that we didn’t want to know about but, having learned about, can never forget.

The Memoirs of W.T. Sherman

The Memoirs of W.T. Sherman

I went so deep into Civil War in 2012 that I lost track of all the books. I started this last year when I read Sherman by B.H Liddell Hart (and recommended as a favorite). I came to admire Sherman so deeply that I read two more books about him. I came to admire Sherman so deeply that I read two more books about him: Sherman’s Memoirs and a big old book from 1933 Sherman: Fighting Prophet.
