Mario Salvadori
Why Buildings Stand Up
1982

You don't have to be an architecture buff to get completely sucked in by Why Buildings Stand Up, which offers simple drawings and plain English to illuminate complex structural concepts. Anybody who has ever marveled at towering skyscrapers will find Salvadori's book compelling, as will just about anyone who's ever had a roof over their head. Plus, you'll impress your friends with your newfound mastery of words like "curvilinear." (TN)
