For more lessons from failure, I recommend Henry Petroski's book "To
Engineer is Human: The Role of Failure in Successful Design", and the more
recent "Design Paradigms: Case Histories of Error and Judgment in
Engineering". Petroski's writing gives an excellent sense of the human
side of engineering.
