Synopsis

Synopsis

National Geographic answers all the questions about how things work--the science, technology, biology, chemistry, physics, and mechanics--in an indispensible book that reveals the science behind virtually everything. How does the voice of a distant radio announcer make it through your alarm clock in the morning? How does your gas stove work? How does the remote control open your garage door? What happens when you turn the key in the ignition? What do antibiotics really do? Divided into four big realms--Mechanics, Natural Forces, Materials & Chemistry, Biology & Medicine--The Science of Everything takes readers on a fascinating tour, using plain talk, colorful photography, instructive diagrams, and everyday examples to explain the science behind all the things we take for granted in our modern world.
Praise

Praise

"With 400 big, glossy pages, this hardback has the heft of a textbook, but with pictures and writing style accessible to anyone--even if your own scientific experiences never went beyond a kitchen-counter volcano of baking soda and vinegar." --The Washington Post

Dedicated to the notion that everything around us has an interesting science tale to tell, this abundantly illustrated, modern-day book of knowledge makes learning fun — and makes remembering forgotten science even better!” –WebWire.com
