Overview

Have you ever looked at a car and wondered how it worked? Maybe an airplane piqued your curiosity, or a building, or a piece of everyday technology like your phone.

With full color cross sections, How Things Work, finally answers these questions. More than 100 things are dissected so that one can examine the inner workings of things as diverse as a 3D printer or a television. The book is organized categorically into ten chapters, covering topics like Transportation, Architecture, Communication, and Ancient Civilizations. Each chapter has eleven subjects that are dissected through diagrams and cross sections. A thematic index at the end allows one to easily locate all items of interest.

Learn about how these things developed over time and how they impacted the course of human development. From ancient chariots of war, to the telegraph, to the technologies of the future, learn about the mechanics of the world around us.
