“This selection from Rickover’s lectures and editorials is an intriguing glimpse of his academic legacy.”
— President Jimmy Carter
“This book is a treasure chest of Admiral Rickover’s thoughts, principles, and philosophy of life. It is not just for engineers. This book should be read by, and serve as a reference for, all young people preparing for college and those early in their careers.”
— Admiral Frank “Skip” Bowman, Former Director of Naval Nuclear Propulsion
“Paul Cantonwine has done the engineering profession a tremendous service in compiling this selection from the speeches, biographical sketches, congressional testimony, and writing on education of Admiral Rickover. Their words are as relevant to engineers, managers, policy makers, and educators today as they were when the Father of Nuclear Power first wrote and spoke them.”
— Henry Petroski, author of “To Engineer is Human”
