This book subtitled "One Robot, a Dozen Engineers, and the Race to Revolutionize the Way We Build" describes a twenty-five year project to build a robot that can lay bricks as well as a mason. Author Jonathan Waldman follows a start-up called Construction Robotics, working out of a small trailer, with a boldly unconventional team of engineers to build the Semi-Automated Mason: SAM. The book unfolds as an engineering drama, full of trials and setbacks, heated showdowns between meticulous scientists and brash bricklayers (and their even more opinionated union), and hard-earned milestone achievements.
