David Macaulay's The Way things Work has demystified science and technology for a huge audience.

Children can enjoy David Macaulay's humorous approach and create a selection of innovative models with this unique interactive kit. A stunningly simple range of basic components fit together to create a fantastic set of working models that move, lift, push, pump, and much more. This kit contains scales, a sail-powered land yacht, a pneumatic earth mover, a winch, a hoist, a belt-driven fairground ride, a simple vehicle, a balloon-powered car, a propeller-powered car, an electric racing car, a pneumatic robot arm, and a windmill. The Way Things Work Kit is an inventor's workshop for budding young scientists, engineers, and anyone who wants to know how things work. The kit contains: tons, dowels, and discs combine to produce 12 fantastic working models ular fighters in World Championship Wrestling. It gives the reader an unprecedented look behind the scenes of WCW, revealing how each show is put together and what training the wrestlers have to go through before they can set foot in the ring. With unlimited access to the archives at WCW headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, Dorling Kindersley has been able to combine never-before-seen images with a fact-packed text to create an invaluable book for the wrestling fan.

Review:

David Macaulay has made it his business to demystify science and technology for children (and certainly one or two surreptitious adults) with his worldwide bestseller, The New Way Things Work. Packed with information on the inner workings of everything from the World Wide Web to windmills, the remarkable and humorous book guides readers through the fundamental principles of machines. And now Macaulay and his trusty mammoth sidekick are back, ready to make science even more fun and comprehensible. The Way Things Work Kit is a hands-on, fully interactive kit, equipped with everything needed to perform over 50 activities, including the construction of 12 working models. A handy cardboard carrying case opens to reveal a guidebook, a CD-ROM with instructions on how to build your own pinball games, activity cards, and more than 100 basic components that fit together to make models from a balloon-powered car to a robot arm to a fairground ride. Children will be absorbed for hours as they learn about levers and hydraulics, winches and friction, inertia and pneumatics. Future engineers--not to mention just regular humans--couldn't have a better introduction to the way things work. (Ages 8 and older) --Emilie Coulter
