Featured: How Things Work

 How Things Work
4 Hardcover Volumes
out of print

Not to be confused with David Macaulay's wonderful children's book, The Way Things Work, this is a translation of the German Wie funktionert das? Entries, with diagrammatic illustrations, for everything from lightbulbs and the design of highway intersections, to blast furnaces and bicycle pedal brake systems.

 These books, and thousands of others, can be purchased from:
