    ITEM#: 2515840

    The information age is upon us, baffling us with thousands of complicated state-of-the-art technologies. To help make sense of the computer age, David Macaulay brings us The New Way Things Work. This completely updated and expanded edition describes twelve new machines and includes more than seventy new pages detailing the latest innovations. With an entirely new section that guides us through the complicated world of digital machinery, where masses of electronic information can be squeezed onto a single tiny microchip, this revised edition embraces all of the newest developments, from cars to watches. Each scientific principle is brilliantly explained--with the help of a charming, if rather slow-witted, woolly mammoth.

    • Great book for everyone

      Have purchased this book on several occasions for boys as young as 8 to men. Great book for those who like to know how things "work" on a level where most can understand. The variety of information and illustrations are wonderful and I'm sure all who receive this book will enjoy it for years to come. I think it's a great gift for younger men as it will "grow" with them. Would even be good for us " curious thinking" females too.

    • Great Book

      I bought this book for my husband and he loved it! This book has amazing, easy to learn information on everything in it. My husband is the type of person who is always yearning to learn and this book was one of his favorite gifts he received for his birthday this past year. Great gift for inquiring minds!
