Simple topic. Have you read any good books lately? Or are you reading anything really good right now? If you had to pick one, what is your favorite book? Do you have any favorite authors? I'll start! I joined a new book club a few months ago, and right now, we're reading Murder on the Orient Express. I don't think I'd ever really read any Agatah Christy novels before, though I remember my brother reading them when I was a kid. I'm a little surprised to say that I am really enjoying it! That book gave me goosebumps as I was reading it last night. My favorite book is probably a tie between The Secret History by Donna Tartt and The Power of One by Bryce Courtenay. The latter was a book I chose for summer reading in high school, and I still really like it. I haven't reread it in a while though, perhaps I should. I'm really trying to get back into reading (I fell into a multi-year period where I wasn't really reading any books, just blogs, newspapers, and online news). Are there any other regular (or avid) readers out there?
I have been a transportation/civil engineer for 8 years and was lucky to have a very good training and work experience. I would like to take my knowledge to the next level with some serious learning. I would appreciate some advices/suggestions/ideas on the best manuals/standards/guides/papers that you know of and would get your hands on earlier in your career in the areas below. (Also anything else you think would complement them well and would make one a great transportation/civil engineer). I appreciate your time and help! Both design and operation on: Roadway, pedestrian, hydraulics, site, traffic, mass transit, rail, ITS, project management. Thanks!
