A lavishly illustrated practical guide for understanding bridges, with case studies of the world's most famous bridges. How to Read Bridges is a practical introduction to looking at the structure and purpose of bridges and a guide to reading the structural clues embedded in every bridge which allows you to appreciate their variety and ingenuity.
