Chris Fraser is often asked how to do something. He is good at making engineering problems understandable and solvable. He has a superb ability to explain engineering principles and project methodologies so that the reader can understand what makes things tick, boil, explode and work.
Inventing for the rest of us is recommended support material for the first year Bachelor of Engineering Students at Massey University. It is a book for Men who want to make and maintain their own stuff. Chris is qualified in analytical chemistry and has spent over two decades working with international quality systems. His academic experience and expertise in processes provides an excellent foundation for Chris to clearly explain how to go about inventing things. Physics calculations, radioactive dating, presumptions and assumptions are amongst the topics covered.
Chris’s insight into how to harbour creativity is worth the price of the book alone...
“Mistakes remind us that we are all human. A person must acknowledge their own faults and weaknesses before they can continue on successfully with a project, otherwise useful energy can be lost in denying that you made a mistake in the first place. Resentment towards other people can prevent the flow of useful information. If you constantly deny making any mistakes you will become your own worst obstacle in life.”
