Additional Information

Engineers want to get employed and stay employed.

An Engineer's Guide to Solving Problems targets engineering students and fresh graduates.

The transition from engineering school to real world problem solver can be rough. Suddenly, there is not just one correct response for a problem. There might be an infinite number of correct solutions, where some are simply better than others. Some problems are so layered and twisted that their solutions seem absurdly complex.

Arm yourself for success with the methods in this book:

  • The Five Questions every problem solver must answer.
  • The best and worst ways to communicate your ideas.
  • New ways to see what other observers miss.
  • Mastering the right tools.
  • Six warnings to heed when you think you have a solution.
  • Critical challenge questions you must answer before you declare victory.

Employers and customers cherish engineers who consistently meet their toughest challenges.  This book delivers simple methods, practical advice, and entertaining stories to help you sharpen your skills.

This book is intended for mature readers.  The author occasionally uses strong language to humorous effect or makes references not intended for children.

The Second Edition includes some updates plus a new cover and shorter title. The first edition was originally published as The Dog Barks When the Phone Rings: An Engineer's Guide to Solving Problems.

Perfect gift
Written with electrical engineering samples, this book is useful for anyone doing engineering of any kind. The book captures the practical wisdom of a life-long practitioner, someone who was in the trenches of the engineer's world. I am a software engineer and found much that was useful for me. Chapters like "If I Could See It, I Could Fix It" are very useful. Overall, the author is more concerned with highlighting good questions to ask and how engineers think than providing specific answers, which is why the book is so useful. Asking the right questions is something that is learned over time and much more important than the specific answer in a particular context.

The book is also hilariously funny. The author has a wonderful sense of humor that had me laughing uproariously many times.

Highly recommended.
The book is fun to read, despite the serious title. It doesn't require an engineering degree to comprehend the ideas nor does it apply only to scientific problem solving. The tips work for business, management, and all sorts of practical challenges.
