The Imperfectionists by Simon Winchester

New York Times best-selling author and officer of the Order of the British Empire, Simon Winchester this time examines not a person, place, or event exactly, but a concept—precision. In this masterfully written study of accuracy and its role in the Industrial Revolution and beyond, Winchester takes us on a journey through time and across the globe, all the while questioning the obsession with precision and wondering what we may have lost because of it. - Aric
