We’ve been big “fans” of Salvatore Basile’s delightful social history on the birth of the air conditioner for some time now. Really! We rate it right up there with Devil in the White City, The Pencil by Henry Petroski, and Salt by Mark Kurlansky.
Well, it seems we’re not alone in our enthusiasm for this quirky book. Library Journal just released their 2015 bestseller list for engineering and technology titles, and COOL: How Air Conditioning Changed Everything is sitting pretty at #7. Congrats, Sal!
