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


This is a pack containing a booklet and components to make 12 working models which form an interactive inventor's workshop for budding young scientists. There are step-by-step instruction cards and a CD-ROM providing information on scientific principles, history, inventions and inventors. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Educational Comedy 21. März 1998
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The Way Things Work by David MacAulay is an encyclopedia of technology hidden in a children's book. The illustrations are designed to encapsulate each description for children, but the text is fashioned in such a way that both the child and the adult can glean differing levels of understanding from it. The aspect of humor is used to make the information more palatable, and was one of the most endearing parts of the book. One of the best features of this book is its exceptional illustrations done in pen and ink involving cavemen and woolly mammoths. I was expecting to buy a juvenille explanation of simplistic household objects and got a book that I repeatedly borrowed from its recipient to read for myself (much to his chagrin). I was quite impressed and would reccomend this book to anyone looking to purchase an in-depth "But Why?" book for a youngster or an enjoyable plain-english technology manual for adults.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This Book Is Great! 21. März 2000
Von Matt Kurtin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book gives a great overview of how simple and complicated mechanical devices work. It really helped me for school projects, and is just a fun book to read. It's a great book for kids and adults alike, if you buy it you won't regret it. Two thumbs up!

4.0 von 5 Sternen My review on The Way Things Work 22. April 2000
Von Ivan Cvitkovic - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The Way Things Work explains how ordinary and unordinary objects work. For example you would never think that a fission bomb would implod before it exploded or that a red piece of paper is red because it reflects cyan and yellow light. It gives detailed explanation of the forces and energies used in that device. It also gives fictional stories about how that energy and/or force could be used.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A book that belongs in every house with kids. 20. März 1998
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Anyone with children in their life, or a child-like heart will enjoy this book. It is not just for kids, but it answers many of the questions that only kids think to ask. How do toilets flush, what makes zippers zip, and sewing machines sew? How do seat belts work? What about submarines and airplanes?
The book begins with simple machines and works up to complicated ones. For older children it can be a useful homework reference. But this is more than a reference book.
The drawings and explanations are not only clear, they are entertaining. Throughout the book there is a series of ingenious vignettes describing the interaction of wooly mammoths and machines. Mammoths dressed in hot air balloons. Mammoths functioning as computers (answering questions by dropping the appropriate number of logs, which gets cumbersome.)
The result is a book that can be a marvelous bedtime story or mid-afternoon browsing book, as well as a reference book for those awkward questions. Kids as young as three or four will enjoy some parts of this book, while adults will still be intrigued by some of the explanations.
This is a book for teachers, parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles to have on their shelves, both to answer questions and to encourage them.

Whether you are a mechanical engineer or a philosopher, The Way Things Work will teach you everything you want to know about a wide variety of modern devices. The art is beautiful, technically correct, and humorous. Buy it for your children AND for yourself.
