The Perfectionists by Simon Winchester

Title:  The Perfectionists

Author: Simon Winchester


One should read Simon Winchester not only for the interesting history lessons, but because of the great writing, in my opinion.  In the Perfectionists he takes us on a trip through the industrial revolution from the perspective of more and more precision.  As our technology has advanced, we have become more exacting in our measurements.  Without this, we wouldn’t have the world we live in today.
