ENGins | The Tech News You Want
Your Engineering Inspiration for Monday 18 November 2019

If you're looking for good books that are relevant to your discipline, or cover a key area that you're keen to learn more about, our recommendation system can help. It pulls in your customisation preferences and uses them to deliver you interesting titles. Just check in the ENGins front page with your customisation preferences turned on and check the Books module.

Alternatively, you can turn customisation off to explore subjects beyond your specialisation: just use the customisation switch at the top of the page and then navigate the site using the drop-down menus.

To learn more about a book you see (or to submit a review), just hover over the cog-head icon next to the title.

Very best,
