Format: Paperback
"Masters of Suspension" is a great read and a beautifully done book. The writing flows so well and really pulls you into the story The coffee-table size book's photos wonderfully complement the narrative.

The story of the former bridge, Galloping Gertie (which survived less than a year), which this new bridge replaces seems too amazing to be true, but you just can't make up stuff like that! The story of that bridge architect who left Washington to get away from the infamy, but was recognized just the same in a Japanese POW camp is just too, too funny.

The book details well the challenges of such an endeavor, but also focuses on the people who made it happen, which is what makes it such an engaging and compelling read.

Format: Hardcover
I saw a fascinating lecture at the University of Washington about the construction of this bridge, and was so amazed at the difficulty of the project, and the success and beauty of the bridge, that I wanted to learn more about the engineering and construction of the bridge, and the people who built it. This book did not disappoint. The photos are terrific, and the writing is a joy to read.
