|The Art of Doing Science and Engineering (Stripe Press)|
|Friday, 05 June 2020|
Can we train ourselves to think in a way that will enable world-changing understandings and insights to emerge? Mathematician and Turing Award winner Richard Hamming said we can, and he first inspired a generation of engineers, scientists, and researchers in 1986 with "You and Your Research"; an analysis of why some scientists do great work, why most don't, why he did, and why you should, too. This book, subtitled "Learning to Learn" expands on those ideas. Originally published in 1996 and adapted from a course that Hamming taught at the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, this edition includes a new foreword by Bret Victor, and more than 70 redrawn graphs and charts.
