A Beautiful Engineer!

I am an engineer, a EE at that. This person is also an engineer, but one would be taken aback it she were in any class with other students at my school. We had no women in classes then. And her physical beauty would have upturned the environment! But life is full of those surprises--surely here's one. It is a fun book to read. And give her credit for her work to develop her designs.
