How Infrastructure Works

Transforming our shared systems for a changing world

«The urgent problems of the modern era have instilled in so many of us a deep craving to more clearly see the systems that define our lives, to better understand when and why they fail, and to regain agency over a world that can seem too complex to understand much less affect. Fortunately, Deb Chachra has written exactly the book we needed. Revelatory, superbly written, and pulsing with wisdom and humanity, How Infrastructure Works is a masterpiece.»

«Deb Chachra provides a helpful and hopeful guide to understanding the hidden systems that keep our everyday lives going. You won't see the world the same after reading this book!»

Austin Kleon, author of <i>Steal Like an Artist</i>

«A wonderful, wide-ranging narrative addressing the technical, social, personal, historical, and political aspects of the often-disregarded, invisible systems that support us. Forged of a huge heart and vast expertise, it shines with fierce humanity.»

Helen Macdonald, author of <i>Vesper Flights</i> and <i>H Is for Hawk</i>

«Deb Chachra is the perfect guide not just to how infrastructure works but also how it feels. This book is just like the power plants it describes: a precise machine, a fountain of energy.»

Robin Sloan, author of <i>Sourdough</i> and <i>Mr Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore</i>

«How Infrastructure Works gives you x-ray vision into our built environment. It's also a ton of fun to read; Chachra is a gifted stylist and a first-rate intellectual guide.»

Clive Thompson, author of <i>Coders</i>

«A hopeful, lyrical - even beautiful - hymn to the systems of mutual aid we embed in our material world, from sewers to roads to the power grid.»

Cory Doctorow, author of <i>Red Team Blues</i>

«An extraordinary book that shows just how much the vast engineering structures that we rely on every day are shaped by political and social forces. It’s a passionate plea for people to understand that engineering is deeply human

Professor Mark Miodownik, author of <i>Stuff Matters<i>

«Essential. . . . a passionate argument for the political necessity of functioning infrastructure.»

Annalee Newitz, Washington Post
