The How Things Work Encyclopedia takes a look at the technology all around us-and then explains how it works. In each themed section of the encyclopedia, inventions are unpacked to show how and why they work the way they do. Readers can lift the hood of a car engine, get inside a TV set, and discover the power of invisible microwaves. Photographs of the inventions and discoveries, with close-ups, cutaways, and diagrams, bring the technology to life so children can really see and understand what's going on inside.

This is the story of Chris Pownall¿s life beginning from early childhood to retirement. Chris¿ autobiography is unique because he tells his story with a slant towards the more hilarious side of his life. Chris has always had a reputation for being there when things were going wrong¿but it¿s nothing to do with him really! His former work colleagues will bear witness to situations involving freak weather conditions and disrupted travelling arrangements. His sense of humour has seen him through many difficult situations¿which he managed to salvage with wit and discretion.Chris enjoys humour and receives great satisfaction in giving others a reason to laugh. His fifty years of continuous employment gave him great fulfilment and provided amazing opportunities for travel and experience of many industries and cultures which he shares in this account. Chris has been privileged to work with some highly capable and interesting people; not all are referred to in this book but this autobiography focuses upon those with whom Chris worked more closely and had the most fun. Despite all the self-effacing humour, the author has a serious side which has driven his search for knowledge at the forefront of sealing technology. As you read these stories the author hopes that these yarns no matter how unbelievable some may seem, will not cause offence, as they are not intended to, but will bring a smile to your face as you share in the humour of his hilarious and not so hilarious past!

Travel back in time and into the not-so-distant future to dissect, explore, and discover how all kinds of things do what they do! Along the way, you'll learn why cotton candy is so fluffy, how scientists built a space suit for Mars, and what goes into animating your favorite cartoons. Look inside, take it apart, turn it over, and figure out how things work! Quippy descriptions, full-color diagrams, and brilliant photographs make even the most intimidating subjects completely accessible--and totally fun! (We're looking at you, space robots.)

"This book uses familiar objects to introduce basic physics concepts, demonstrating the excitement and relevance to professionals in a variety of technical fields. Because its structure is defined by real-life examples, this book explores concepts as they are needed and then revisits them later on when they reappear in other objects. It integrates case studies throughout the chapters to easily convey an understanding and appreciation for physics. For example, discussions of skating, falling balls, and bumper cars are included to explain the Laws of Motion. Air conditioners and automobiles are used to explore thermodynamics. Engineers, architects, and professionals in other technical fields will benefit from the material that connects science to our everyday world"--
