This fully revised and updated edition of the 1944 classic serves as a crucial compilation of "house rules", or as a professional code. It addresses three areas: what the beginner needs to learn at once; "laws" relating chiefly to engineering executives; and purely personal considerations for engineers. Packed with contemporary examples, this new volume is a must for anyone entering the engineering field or for practicing engineers who are interested in improving their professional effectiveness.

This hidden gem was first published 60 years ago but was known only to a lucky few until it resurfaced in 2005 - when 300,000 requests were made for a CEO's personalised version. In the summer of 2005, Business 2.0 published a cover story on a self-published management pamphlet by the CEO of American aerospace contractor Raytheon. Lauded by chief executives including Jack Welch and Warren Buffett ('one of the best books I've seen') it became a phenomenon, and more than 300,000 people wrote in to ask for a copy. But much of the pamphlet drew on a book from 1944 - which Profile reissued, updated as The Unwritten Laws of Business in 2007. Filled with sage advice and written in a clear, engaging style, it offers insights on relating to colleagues and outsiders, the laws of character and personality, personal development, and much, much more - all of which has stood the test of time. Refreshingly free of the latest business jargon, The Unwritten Laws of Business is wise, ethical and insightful, capturing and distilling the timeless truths and principles that underlie management and business the world over.

This book sets out the principles of engineering practice, knowledge that has come to light through more than a decade of research by the author and his students studying engineers at work. Until now, this knowledge has been almost entirely unwritten, passed on invisibly from one generation of engineers to the next, what engineers refer to as “experience”. This is a book for all engineers. It distils the knowledge of many experts in one volume. The book will help engineers enjoy a more satisfying and rewarding career and provide more valuable results for their employers and clients. The book focuses on issues often seen as “non-technical” in the world of engineering, yet it shows how these issues are thoroughly technical. Engineering firms traditionally have sought expert advice on these aspects from management schools, often regarding these aspects of engineering practice as something to do with psychology or organisational behaviour. The results are normally disappointing because management schools and psychologists have limited insight and understanding of the technical dimensions in engineering work. Little if any of the material in this book can be obtained from management texts or courses. Management schools have avoided the technical dimension of workplace practices and that is precisely what characterises engineering practice. The technical dimension infuses almost every aspect of an engineer’s working day and cannot be avoided. That’s why this book is so necessary: there has not yet been any authoritative source or guidance to bridge the gap between inanimate technical issues and organisational behaviour. This book fills this gap in our knowledge, is based on rigorous research, and yet is written in a style which is accessible for a wide audience.

From one of the authors of The Unwritten Laws of Engineering and The Unwritten Laws of Business, this concise and readable book is an excellent primer or refresher for any professional interested in the basic principles and practices of good mechanical design. In this handy and unique volume the author uses his own experience, along with input from other expert designers, to explicitly state design principles and practices. Readers will not have to discover these principles on their own and will be able to apply these fundamental concepts throughout their designs.

Humans have always sought to change their environment--building houses, monuments, temples, and roads. In the process, they have remade the fabric of the world into newly functional objects that are also works of art to be admired. Samuel Florman explores how engineers think and feel about their profession. A deeply insightful and refreshingly unique text, this book corrects the myth that engineering is cold and passionless. Indeed, Florman celebrates engineering not only crucial and fundamental but also vital and alive; he views it as a response to some of our deepest impulses, an endeavour rich in spiritual and sensual rewards. Opposing the "anti-technology" stance, Florman gives readers a practical, creative, and even amusing philosophy of engineering that boasts of pride in his craft. Why, asks Samuel Florman, has engineering sunk into such disfavour? Can engineers be blamed for pollution, the desecration of the landscape, a lack of taste? Samuel Florman is himself a distinguished and erudite engineer and he sets out to dispel the myth that has darkened the image of his profession, celebrating it as a vital, living force that is an essential part of human nature, rich in spiritual and sensual rewards. We are all dependent on engineers and the benefits they can provide, in opposing the fashionable 'anti-technology' stance, Florman emerges triumphantly with a creative, practical and fun philosophy of engineering that will boost his profession. Stimulating and illuminating, this book opens our eyes to the inner need to build, invent and manipulate, which only engineering can satisfy. This is essential reading for all who seek to understand their primal instincts. An eloquent, witty and perceptive celebration of our deepest creative impulses, an informative account of the modern-day engineer's experience of his/her profession.

Such landmark books as "The Peter Principle, Parkinson's Law", and "Up the Organization" have had an indelible effect on the management culture of our time through their acute visions of the tangles and paradoxes of modern business. To that short list must now be added "Augustine's Laws" -a classic of the genre, a brilliant (and ruefully hilarious) book on the looking-glass world of business management and organizational misbehavior. it offers its readers multiple shocks of recognition and priceless insights into how things might be better run. The fifty-two "Augustine's Laws" set forth here cover every area of business. Each law formulates a home truth about business life that, once pointed out, is impossible to forget or ignore. Each law is imbedded in a literate, droll, quotation-laden text, whose contrapuntal humor brings into sharp focus all the knotty complexities a manager is ever likely to face. As a bonus, readers can also follow, law by law, the cautionary saga of the Daedalus Model Airplane Company, a concern founded in unfounded optimism by two business school graduates, and headed straight for oblivion -but not before every disastrous mistake known to managerial life is made.
