We Take School POs
All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

In well-written, not-overly-technical prose, these books explain how engineers have protected us from natural disasters by building sturdier homes and buildings and stronger infrastructure; and how engineers have made transportation safer and more reliable. Clear diagrams and well-captioned photos effectively complement the informative texts. This series could spark interest in STEM careers. Reading list, websites. Bib., glos., ind.
