About the book:

In The Sand Dollar and the Slide Rule, Delta Willis explores the relationship between natural forms and human engineering and the beauty, economy, and efficiency in the way birds fly, fish swim, and trees grow. She then applies this knowledge to design, and how humans can adapt such natural blueprints for everything from ultra-light aircraft to massive skyscrapers.
