Dr. Lyle D. Feisel, P.E. (IA A '61), is a former dean of engineering at SUNY Binghamton and recently served as the interim Executive Director of the American Society for Engineering Education (2010-11).
In 2002, he was asked to write a series of 40 articles for THE BENT of Tau Beta Pi. The "Lyle's Laws" articles have now been compiled into a single volume that has been published by Brooklyn River Press and is available through Amazon for $14.99 plus shipping. However, Lyle is making a special offer to anyone who would like to have an autographed copy of the book and at the same time support Tau Beta Pi.
If you would like an autographed copy of Lyle's Laws, send $20.00 and a note that mentions Tau Beta Pi to:
Lyle D. Feisel
475 Sandpiper Ct.
Chestertown, MD 21620-1243
You will receive an autographed copy, and Tau Beta Pi will receive a $5.00 donation. Shipping and taxes are included in the $20.00 payment. A caveat: Lyle travels a lot, so it may be several weeks before you receive your copy.
There has also been some interest in using Lyle's Laws in educational programs. Discount bulk orders are available for certain academic purposes; please contact Brooklyn River Press for further information. For a sample of Lyle's Laws, read #5:"Lyle's Law of Thinking" from the Fall 2003 issue of THE BENT.
