LEGO (R) bricks meet The Way Things Work in this fun, informative tour of the world of engineering, from the creative mind of expert LEGO (R) builder Jeff Friesen.

In The LEGO (R) Engineer, you'll explore how some of humanity's greatest feats of engineering work, from towering skyscrapers to powerful rockets to speeding bullet trains. Then follow step-by-step instructions to build these marvels with LEGO (R) bricks as you experience the world of engineering in a fun new way.

How do diesel and electric engines work together to drive massive freight trains? How does a container ship's bow shape contribute to its fuel efficiency? How do cable-stayed bridges distribute weight differently than suspension bridges? You'll learn the answers to these engineering questions and more as you build your way through over 30 models, all designed by LEGO (R) expert Jeff Friesen. Understanding the engineering principles behind these structures will not only help you better appreciate the world around you, but will also help you make your own LEGO (R) builds more realistic.
