Table of Contents
An informative and well-organized introduction to Watt... Recommended [for] general readers, lower-division undergraduates, and two-year technical program students. -- Choice Marsden declaims on the steam engine's putative inventor in a half-bemused, half-impressed tone that will amuse technology buffs in addition to giving them an appreciation for Watt's significance... Crystal clear on technical points, Marsden is archly amusing in discussing how reputations are made. -- Booklist A lively historical coverage of how the engine evolved and reflected not only the promise, but the problems of the industrial revolution. A fine, wide-ranging history. -- Bookwatch An engagingly written little book. -- Eighteenth-Century Scotland, Issue 20
