I went through his list last year and selected two books that got my attention.

The first is a book about the rise of the shipping container. Really informative and clearly describes the design process behind a technique we've always taken for granted. It's a historical account mainly, starting from the idea all the way to modern day shipping.

The second, which I read through the first few chapters of, describes the origins of the steam engine, but it was a bit bland for my tastes.

Both are interesting books to be frank so I'd recommend at least checking them out.
