Meet the Author Robert J. Brust Author of Human Understanding: An Engineer's Analysis of Life, Getting to the Basics
Monday, April 29 - 6:30pm | Community Room


“Do you really know why you think the way you do?"

Robert Brust PE, SE, is a structural engineer who has worked on some of the country’s more well-known buildings. Brust began his lengthy search for human understanding after a tragedy: his son died, causing him to reexamine all of his assumptions about how best to live. What he learned, from looking at problem solving and life from an analytical way – from an engineer’s perspective is the premise for his book.

Sponsored by The Friends of the Library. Copies of David’s books will be available for purchase and signing.

If you have a disability and require accommodation in order to fully participate, please contact library staff.
