"...Provides an introduction to the technology that underpins modern life. It is a useful identification tool to the anonymous industrial sites, strange towers and masts, bewildering electrical installations, and myriad bridge designs we see every day, as well as the hidden world of pipes, drains, and cables that can be found beneath our feet.... This intriguing book peels away the skin of the modern city, revealing the arteries of water, waste, power, and communication that we use without a thought." -- cover.
