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 an alarm clock in the morning?
•How does a gas stove work?
•How does the remote control open a garage door?
•What happens when someone turns 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 students 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.
