Engineering in Plain Sight is a beautifully illustrated field guide with  accessible explanations to nearly every part of the constructed world  around us.
Author Grady Hillhouse is the creator behind the  popular YouTube channel Practical Engineering (2.7 million subscribers!)  and this book is essentially 50 new episodes crammed between two  covers.

Engineering in Plain Sight extends the field guide genre  from natural phenomena to human-made structures, making them  approachable and understandable to non-engineers. It transforms readers'  perspectives of the built environment, converting the act of looking at  infrastructure from a mundane inevitability into an everyday diversion  and joy.

Each section of this accessible, informative book  features colorful illustrations revealing the fascinating details of how  the human-made world works. An ideal road trip companion, this book  offers a fresh perspective on the parts of the environment that often  blend into the background. Readers will learn to identify  characteristics of the electrical grid, roadways, railways, bridges,  tunnels, waterways, and more. Engineering in Plain Sight inspires  curiosity, interest, and engagement in how the infrastructure around us  is designed and constructed.
