Click to see if another is available for you to download. Famously packed with information on the inner workings of everything from windmills to Wi-Fi, this extraordinary and humorous book both guides readers through the fundamental principles of machines, and shows how the developments of the past are building the world of tomorrow. This sweepingly revised edition embraces all of the latest developments, from touchscreens to 3D printer.
Each scientific principle is brilliantly explained--with the help of a charming, if rather slow-witted, woolly mammoth.
An illustrated survey of significant inventions closes the book, along with a glossary of technical terms, and an index. What possible link could there be between zippers and plows, dentist drills and windmills? Parking meters and meat grinders, jumbo jets and jackhammers, remote control and rockets, electric guitars and egg beaters? Macaulay explains them all.

Sep 27, Burt added it Shelves: My parents got me this book when I was a kid for Christmas. I still have it on my shelf, and it's still actually a really good, really informative reference book. Like any other David Macaulay book, it's fully illustrated another Caldecott winner I believe and fun to just look at.
The texts read fairly clearly as well, and it outlines everything from the simple tools wedges, inlined planes, levers, and wheels to the insanely complex Solid rocket boosters for the space shuttle and nuclear po My parents got me this book when I was a kid for Christmas.
The texts read fairly clearly as well, and it outlines everything from the simple tools wedges, inlined planes, levers, and wheels to the insanely complex Solid rocket boosters for the space shuttle and nuclear power plants. Dec 17, Amar Pai rated it liked it. The drawings are too messy. It's nice that this book is organized by principle of operation lever, pulley, etc. But the illustrations don't really illustrate things very well-- especially for machines where you need to visualize all 3 dimensions.
Whatever happened to electronic paper? This book would be awesome if the diagrams were all animated. You can't read the internet in t The drawings are too messy. You can't read the internet in the bath. I hope someday another version of this comes out that has holograms and e-paper.
And lasers. Jul 06, Ramu Vairavan rated it it was amazing Shelves: I cannot recommend this book more for readers of all ages who are interested in the science behind machines.
If technology and machines are not your definition of fun, you might just discover a new interest after reading this. Usually, books that explore how things work are intense and the reader is at risk of information overload.
In this book though, a parallel theme featuring comical adventures of woolly mammoths helps to ironically lighten the weight of information. Besides the endearing I cannot recommend this book more for readers of all ages who are interested in the science behind machines.
Besides the endearing bygone creatures, I liked the mechanics portion best. Many of the machines here are commonplace, but the approach with which they are presented is thoroughly refreshing. The illustrations by David Macaulay are amazing — the very opposite of engineering drawings.
I wish I had seen this book when I was a child, which no doubt would have sited an interest in science and engineering early. Apr 17, Carolyn Page rated it it was amazing.
Perfect for the budding engineer, or even if you're just curious. Everything from levers and gears to how zippers work to hydrofoils, nuclear power and technology in outer space.
This is a nice thick book and is almost a graphic in how many illustrations it has. Sure some of the computer and space technology they cover may be outdated now, but because the book is mostly principle-based, working everything back to the basic components, it's still useful.
Apr 08, Joey rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: This is a neat book explaining all that high and "techy" stuff which can be so hard to comprehenduntil now. The Author and Illustrator, David Macaulay, really did a great job on this.
It seems as if it's a long book pgs. Very enjoyable and a great way to introduce children to the Way Things Work! Dec 02, Carson Ford rated it really liked it. Covering everything from the wheel to nuclear fission, this book gives descriptive yet concise summaries of how things work.
Instead of organizing inventions chronologically or by complexity, the book is divided based on the components used in an item; for instance, the plow and the zipper are grouped together as they both employ wedges. The illustrations may be my favorite part of the book as they clearly depict even the most intricate devices with small touches of humor scattered throughout.
Jun 02, Kelly rated it liked it Shelves: This is a great reference book. I enjoyed how the concepts were organized and built upon each other. The mammoth mascot is so cute! The age of the Internet and its wealth of frequently updated information may make books like these somewhat out of date.
Still, I recommend this resource to teachers looking to stock their classrooms, school and public libraries, and young readers interested in mechanical topics.
Ebooks: How digital publishers are 'shaking up' the industry
Sep 19, Julia B. I read this book recently, and it was pretty good. I learned a lot about how things work, in a fun way. The illustrations are good, and they teach stuff in a fun way. The drawings with mammoths and the simple machines made me laugh, and the long reading sections were interesting to read as they were partly fictional. This book is a very helpful guild to many of my questions and many science projects.
It has detailed illustrations and is surprisingly interesting. The new way things work explains a lot of things about our daily lives and is very informative. Feb 14, Ethan Hulbert rated it it was amazing Shelves: The mammoths make this book at first.
But really, the amazingly simple yet thorough explanations on how everything around us works truly make the book. It's so fun you don't even realize how much you're really learning.
My favorite part is Bill's gates. Sep 02, Mandabplus3 rated it it was amazing Shelves: The most complete beginners guide to physics used in everyday life that is accessible and entertaining enough to read as a bedtime story for primary age kids.
